The ConnectinGEO project (http://www.connectingeo.net/) is aiming to facilitate a broader and more accessible knowledge base to support the needs of the GEO Societal Benefit Areas (SBAs) and their users. To better detect gaps in the accessibility of observation data, we have developed an online survey to collect feedback from scientists and potential users.
Addis Ababa – 31 January 2016
FRANKFURT • Europe has launched the first part of a new space “data highway” that will pave the way for faster monitoring of natural disasters like earthquakes and floods.
One of South Lakeland’s largest manufacturers is over the moon after supplying materials for an Earth observation mission.
For its 20th anniversary, Mercator Ocean (1995-2015) would like to pay tribute to the scientific operational oceanography community. They have selected 24 papers among the last 52 issues and publish them again in a single volume sorted into 10 thematics.
Four days after its launch on 17 January, the Jason-3 high-precision ocean altimetry satellite is delivering its first sea surface height measurement data in near-real time for evaluation by engineers from the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), EUMETSAT, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and scientists from the international Ocean Surface Topography Science Team.
January 19, 2016. Commercial low-Earth-orbit (LEO) satellites are about to witness tremendous economic growth. Last year, hardly a month passed without the announcement of another satellite constellation designed to support Earth observation or broadband communication. Compared to those in more distant orbits, LEO satellites offer shorter orbiting periods and multiple daily flyovers thanks to their close proximity to Earth; this opens the door to an intriguing market, especially with regard to high-resolution imagery and videos produced by these constellations.
by Peter B. de Selding — January 19, 2016. BRUSSELS, Belgium – European governments are establishing new funding sources to help Europe’s satellite telecommunications industry remain competitive as the sector adapts to global demand for fixed and mobile broadband.
The UAE has become the latest member of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), a voluntary partnership of governments and organizations that was established in 2005 to promote the open access to Earth Observation data for the benefit of all humankind.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) requests public comment on the OGC candidate Discrete Global Grid Systems (DGGS) Core Standard.
Much time is spent this time of year looking forward. Sensors & Systems has been doing this for the past nine years now, and we’ve taken another stab with this latest list. We did some reflecting on emerging issues, innovative approaches and technology trends to come up with the following predictions for 2016. On the list are hardware advancements, policy decisions and directions, and a whole lot more inputs to mapmaking.
Russia has significantly reduced its dependency on foreign remote sensing satellites

[Satnews] Having witnessed tremendous growth in recent years, the market for small satellites now offers untold potential—particularly for small and midsize companies.
This winter, weather patterns may be fairly different than what’s typical – all because of unusually warm ocean water in the east equatorial Pacific, an event known as El Nino. Because of El Nino, California is expected to get more rain, while Australia is expected to get less. Since this El Nino began last summer, the Pacific Ocean has already experienced an increase in tropical storms and a decrease in phytoplankton.
(by Peter B. de Selding — December 15, 2015). ROME — The European Space Agency on Dec. 15 contracted with Thales Alenia Space to build two C-band radar satellites, Sentinel-1C and Sentinel-1D, as part of the European Commission’s Copernicus Earth observation system.
