The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has gathered approximately 17 petabytes (17 million GB) of geospatial data, with expectations of having more than 50 petabytes in the next five years. To encourage use of this wealth of data, ISRO is promoting the information to young entrepreneurs as a way to generate monetary wealth.
BENGALURU: ISRO today said it would launch a record 83 satellites in one go using its workhorse PSLV-C37 toward the end of January.

Since the launch of the first Earth-observing satellites in the 1970s, numerous missions from international space organisations have taken to the sky. Today, decades of data are helping scientists to build a better picture of changes to our planet.
(9 November 2016) ESA and the Asian Development Bank have signed an agreement to collaborate over the next five years to use information from space to support sustainable development.
By Arran Frood & Planet Earth Editors. NERC, the Natural Environment Research Council, is a leading funder of independent research, training and innovation in environmental science in the UK.
Access to crucial satellite environmental data assured through Geoscience Australia-EUMETSAT cooperation
The region has some of the fastest economic growth in the world but also faces some big challenges, including significant exposure to natural hazards and the impacts of climate change.
© Spacenews: PARIS — The European Union’s executive commission on Oct. 26 unveiled a new space strategy that promises public investment to stimulate the creation of space start-up companies.
Built-up areas on the Earth have increased by 2.5 times since 1975. And yet, today 7.3 billion people live and work in only 7.6% of the global land mass. Nine out of the ten most populated urban centres are in Asia, while five out of the ten largest urban centres are in the United States. These are some of the numbers calculated by a new global database which tracks human presence on Earth, launched on 18 October 2016 by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre at the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III).
On the 6th of October 2016, the European Commission entrusted SatCen with the operations of the Copernicus services in Support to EU External Action (SEA) with the signature of a Delegation Agreement by Lowri EVANS, Director-General DG Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (GROW) and Pascal Legai, SatCen Director.
(13 September 2016) ESA and Enterprise Estonia have signed an arrangement that gives one of ESA’s newest Member States access to data from the Copernicus Sentinel satellites.
Government programme awards funding to Rezatec to develop the use of satellite data in evaluating plant health in UK
Harwell, Oxfordshire, 15th September, 2016 Rezatec, leading geospatial data analysts, has recently been awarded Phase II funding for the development of geo-spatial big data analytics products that can identify and monitor plant health on a large scale. The funding from the Space for Smarter Government Programme (via the UK Space Agency), is the result of a competitive application process through Innovate UK’s Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI), following an initial feasibility project (Phase I) to ensure the commercial value of the products and services under development by Rezatec.
Climate protection – DLR and CNES sign an agreement for the construction and operation of the MERLIN environmental satellite
On 14 September 2016 in Berlin, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and the French space agency (Centre national d’études spatiales; CNES) signed a cooperation agreement for the design, construction and operational phases of the Franco-German climate satellite MERLIN in the presence of Brigitte Zypries, Parliamentary State Secretary at the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and Federal Coordinator of German Aerospace Policy, as well as Thierry Mandon, French Minister of State for Higher Education and Research. The agreement was signed by Gerd Gruppe, DLR Executive Board Member responsible for the DLR Space Administration and Jean-Yves Le Gall, the President of CNES. The small satellite mission MERLIN – Methane Remote Sensing LIDAR Mission – will measure the concentration of methane in the Earth’s atmosphere with unprecedented accuracy. The mission will last for three years.
ECMWF has launched its new ten-year Strategy, which sets ambitious goals that push the limits of predictability in weather forecasting.
