EO Quality Assurance Workshop

Introduction:

Quality Assurance (QA) is the concern of all actors in the EO value chain from the Data acquisition to the end-user. It is a component of the value of any EO services or products. Companies are looking at solutions to smooth their process, to integrate various sources of data, to increase sales. Is current QA performance enough? How could we improve the QA? How could we use QA to increase the uptake of EO, improve the value of services and products?
Starting with the view of EO private or public customers from verticals (Oil& Gas, Agro-Insurance, Assurance, Environment), the workshop will explore the different approaches of QA, opportunities or improvement and a road map for implementation.

For all of these reasons, ESA is organizing a workshop around Quality Assurance at the ESRIN, April 9 & 10 2019.

The New EU Space Programme Regulation Proposal and the future of the EO Downstream Services Sector

Brussels, October 2018

The European EO Services industry welcomes the proposal for an EU Space Programme and looks forward to making a strong contribution to its’ success. Copernicus remains an extremely important programme for Europe and for our sector. It has demonstrated how to deliver critical information to European policy makers whilst enabling the services industry to develop business in new markets so delivering more highly-skilled jobs in Europe.

The industry already plays a key role in the delivery of the Copernicus Services, but we consider that a great deal more is possible; the proposed programme lays out a number of key measures which can help. Industry has invested strongly in the development of new products and services, many based on the Free and Open data from Copernicus and is ready to invest further. We believe that a partnership between industry and government will enable the best returns for all parties. In this paper we set out our views on a number of the factors which can help deliver these increased benefits for Europe and its policy makers.

EARSC statement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, and resulting impact on the Copernicus programme

The European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC) is the European organisation which promotes the use of Earth Observation (EO) technology and represents the interests of the geo-information services sector in Europe. We have 101 members from 23 countries covering the full EO services value chain including commercial operators of EO satellites, data resellers, value-adding companies, geospatial information suppliers, consultancies and system/software providers.

As such, EARSC is deeply concerned about the potential impact upon the Copernicus programme should the United Kingdom cease to be a full participant and contributor to the programme. This brief statement sets out our views on the subject and articulates our desired outcome, which is to see the UK continue to contribute and participate fully in the programme.

Call for Experts In Earth Observation & Geographic Information Body of Knowledge [EO4GEO]

The EO4GEO project is inviting experts in the Earth Observation / Geographic Information sectors to participate in the process of developing a Body of Knowledge (BoK) for GI and EO. We are looking for professionals ready to support the description of the particular concepts (topics) in different inter-related knowledge areas, by commenting and contributing to the elaboration of the relevant texts.
