Vacancy for satellite image sales and marketing professional at Geocento

Geocento is looking for an enthusiastic, ambitious professional who combines a knowledge of earth observation with strong marketing, communications and organisational skills, and is able to play a key role in driving forward our growing image sales, as well as supporting our marketing and business development.

Copernicus assists in monitoring risks and planning for response to marine pollution

© Copernicus. In March 2017, following an armed attack on the oil port of Es Sider in Libya, the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC) activated the Mediterranean Operational Network for the Global Ocean Observing System (MONGOOS) services to simulate the worst-case scenario in the case of a potential oil spill incident. This simulation, based on data provided by the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service, in combination with other sources, including local information from REMPEC Focal Points in Libya, providing forecasts on currents and wind, showed that in only 24 hours about 44% of the oil would reach the coast. This information has proven vital for public authorities to prepare for any risk from accidental marine pollution.

SkyWatch to Improve Access to EO Data with EarthCache

(By Kendall Russell | August 30, 2017) Although the global repository of Earth Observation (EO) imagery continues to grow, the means by which developers can turn that data into value are arguably less abundant. To address this demand, young software company SkyWatch has established a new cloud-based system called EarthCache that opens the door for developers to create new applications and products based on remote sensing data.

Morocco to Launch its 1st Pleiade Satellite

Morocco will launch next November 8th its first Pleiade satellite from the European space port of Kourou in French Guiana, according to some Moroccan web sites.

ISRO develops algorithm to clear out haze from images captured by Earth observation satellites

One of the many facilities of ISRO across the country, the Space Applications Centre in Ahmedabad has come up with an algorithm that clears the haze from images captured by Earth observation satellites such as the CartoSat series of satellites.

Ursa Analyzes SAR Imagery and e-geos to Monitor Hurricane Harvey Flooding

(By Kendall Russell | August 28, 2017) Ursa Space System, with support of satellite images furnished by e-Geos, a subsidiary of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and Telespazio, is monitoring areas affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

CSO Alliance and Airbus to improve Maritime Community safety worldwide with tailor-made online crime reporting platform

Toulouse, 29 August 2017 – Airbus Defence and Space partners with CSO Alliance, a maritime community of Company Security Officers (CSOs), to build a tailor-made and secure online reporting platform to help counter maritime crime on a global scale. The platform will be ready for launch in early October and will provide the CSOs and Company Information Security Officers (CISOs) with a worldwide, voluntary and anonymous incident reporting portal for assessing physical, as well as cyber, threat activities and the respective risk levels as the basis for appropriate decision-making and action-taking.

SPOT 6/7 imagery to feed Satshot’s mapping platforms for improved efficiency of US agriculture

Chantilly, VA, 28 August 2017 – Airbus Defence and Space has entered into an agreement with the GIS mapping engine operator Satshot to provide high-resolution SPOT 6/7 satellite data over a large area of the corn and wheat belt within the continental United States. SPOT 6/7 data is integrated into the Satshot platform, which can be used for deep analysis of specific farmland for further improved operations and efficiency.

Landslide in the Swiss Alps: Seen from Space

(© European Space Imaging, Munich, 28/08/17) On Wednesday August 23rd a huge chunk broke off the side of a mountain in Bondo, in the southern Swiss Alps, at speeds of more than 250km/h. It is suspected that the resulting landslide swept away eight hikers.

Giovanni: The Bridge Between Data and Science

(By Zhong Liu and James Acker) Using satellite remote sensing data sets can be a daunting task. Giovanni, a Web-based tool, facilitates access, visualization, and exploration for many of NASA’s Earth science data sets.

Copernicus video presentations available for training

© Copernicus website . A total of 68 training videos complete with presentations and module demonstrations on the Copernicus programme – such as material on funding instruments, access to Copernicus data and information and the many uses thereof – are at your disposal. Entrepreneurs, developers, GI professionals and public authorities, as well as all interested stakeholders are encouraged to watch our videos and discover how Copernicus fits into their world.

Using Satellites to Monitor Progress toward the SDGs

The plummeting cost of satellite data in the past decade has made earth observation (EO) and geospatial information more attractive than ever for addressing poverty, monitoring environmental changes, and stimulating economic growth – among other objectives. It is especially valuable in developing countries, which often do not have adequate monitoring systems to track progress on the Sustainable Development Goals and other global and national goals.

ICEYE Raises $13M in Additional Financing to Develop SAR Microsatellite Constellation

Finnish-based SAR microsatellite technology leader on track for 2017 orbital missions.

Sentinel-1 Speeds up crop insurance payouts

(17 August 2017) For the first time in India, a state government is using satellites to assess lost crops so that farmers can benefit from speedy insurance payouts.

UN-GGIM Welcomes Alignment of Strategic Framework with 2030 Agenda

© Ana Maria Lebada Blog (4 August 2017) The UN Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) discussed implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) during its seventh session. Senior officials and executives from national geospatial information and statistical authorities within Member States and international geospatial experts from across the globe welcomed the alignment of GGIM’s Strategic Framework with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and discussed ways to support the alignment.
