The EO sector is moving fast but is characterized by a strong fragmentation. From all parts, from the research, the private sector, entities are scattered even if they are involved in the same thematic or market, even if they use the same input data, even they face similar processing capabilities issues. Defragmentation is needed. Such as the eoMALL (https://eomall.eu, currently in beta version) dedicated to the promotion of EO online services, linking Service Providers and customers, NextGEOSS aims to facilitate the access and the processing of data to EO users. This is why EARSC is involved, with 6 other EARSC members (Vito, Terradue, Euroconsult, CLS, Deimos Space, Deimos Imaging) in this H2020 project lead by DEIMOS Elecnor.
Mercator Ocean International and the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC) are pleased to invite you to the kick-off event of a partnership signed between the two entities in the context of the Copernicus Programme. The Partnership is the first one of its kind with EARSC in the Copernicus Ecosystem. It will be signed during the 11th European Space Policy Conference, on 22nd January 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.
The Event takes place the 7th of March
Vacancy for Remote Sensing Expert (f/m) in full-time with a focus on data analysis and software programming
GAF AG is a globally operating company with leading expertise in the development of geo-information products and services. Since its founding in 1985, the company has developed a broad geoscience portfolio. With more than 200 highly qualified employees we offer geo-data, data processing, geographic information systems, database applications, software development, consulting and project management as well as development assistance.
GEO and Amazon Web Services collaborate to provide cloud credits for projects that improve understanding of our planet
GEO member agencies and research organizations from developing countries are now able to access cloud services to help with the hosting, processing and analysis of big data about the Earth to inform decisions for sustainable development.
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.

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.
English version of the IFHE book on “Earth observation from space, Optical and radar imagery :A European success” is now available. If you wish to get it please click here:
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.
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.
This week we had the pleasure of interviewing Dutch MEP Caroline Nagtegaal, ALDE Shadow Rapporteur for EU Space Budget to take a closer look at the proposal. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Nagtegaal for her time and her work on this proposal.

Copernicus Sentinel data is being used by water utilities in the UK to improve the management of peatlands, leading to better water quality for local citizens, reduced costs of purification for the water
companies and strong environmental benefits.
