On 24 August, an earthquake struck central Italy, claiming at least 290 lives and causing widespread damage. Satellite images are being used to help emergency aid organisations, while scientists have begun to analyse ground movement.
The Horizon Prizes aim at stimulating innovation and developing solutions to problems that matter to European citizens.
Leonardo – Finmeccanica S.p.A.: Earthquake in Italy: e-GEOS, within the Copernicus program, provides satellite images, maps and data in support of the rescue operation
In the early hours of this morning the operating centres in Rome and Matera of e-GEOS, the joint venture between Telespazio (Leonardo – Finmeccanica/Thales) and the Italian Space Agency, which leads the team of European companies operating in the Copernicus program (Emergency Management Service – Copernicus – Rapid Mapping), were activated to support the Italian Authorities and Civil Protection in managing the aftermath of last night’s earthquake in central Italy.
One of the biggest challenges in providing relief to people living in poverty is locating them. The availability of accurate and reliable information on the location of impoverished zones is surprisingly lacking for much of the world, particularly on the African continent.
A new analysis of satellite images shows that nearly 30 percent of India’s agricultural land is turning into desert, and the rate of soil degradation is increasing at an alarming rate.
Europe is contributing to the UN’s Global Geodetic Reference Frame (GGRF) by developing a platform for exchanging information and expertise.
ECOPOTENTIAL is a European-funded H2020 flagship project that aims to support protected areas in applying earth observation (EO) tools for analysis and modelling of current and future state of ecosystem conditions and services. The scientific results will be used in developing requirements for future protected areas, supporting better decision-making and design of policy, as well as capacity building and knowledge exchange activities. The project focuses its activities and pilot actions on several Protected Areas across Europe, including many mountain areas such as the High Tatras in the Carpathians, observed and monitored by GRID-Warsaw.
