Tools for promoting the Industry

EARSC employs a range of sophisticated digital tools to promote the European EO sector. EARSC has three main digital tools which cover creating a shared vocabulary (EARSC TAXONOMY) , providing a common space to find EO companies, and a common space to discover ‘online’ EO services.

The EARSC EOWiki has been developed a tool to improve understanding and communication between different communities.

Earth observation technologies can be applied and bring value to a wide range of downstream sectors. Most of these sectors have their own terminology and jargon, as, of course, does the EO sector. To help understand the challenges and opportunities and facilitate communication across these downstream communities, EARSC has developed a comprehensive Taxonomy, allowing all interested parties access to a shared vocabulary, and a description of applications relevant to each challenge.

The main tool for exploring the Taxonomy, and the challenges within each sector is the EOwiki. This wiki provides a space to explore the services in context and includes additional resources such as technology watch and success stories to give a comprehensive overview of EO services as they relate to different downstream sectors.
