We are pleased to announce that the Global Earth Monitor project (GEM) has officially started with a kick-off meeting on 25-26 November 2020. In a lively online discussion with all consortium partners - Sinergise, TomTom, EU Satellite Centre, Technical University of Munich, and Meteoblue AG - we paved the road for the future steps to be done within the project.
During the weekend on November 7-8 we had a pleasure to participate at the Slovenia’s longest running and largest student hackathon - DragonHack. As supporters we had a chance to organize our own “Best Earth Observation Hack” challenge and offer the participants a possibility to freely use Sentinel Hub services for their hack. We were genuinely amazed by the results of participating teams, created in just 24 hours.
We would like to extend our invitation to participate in the third round of the Sentinel Hub Custom Script Contest. The deadline for submissions has been prolonged until 30th November 2020, giving you enough time to turn your ideas into scripts.
Join us at this year's virtual event European Space Agenci - ESA EO Φ-week which will be held from September 28th to October 2nd. With our partners we will present the Euro Data Cube’s (EDC) service capabilities for geospatial and Earth observation data analysis within two separate side events. If you are a registered participant at the ESA EO Φ-week 2020, make sure to join the sessions to get an insight into the many opportunities the EDC data factory offers.
We are building a generic service for a Common Agriculture Policy market, that has been from the very beginning, for decades, served by individually tailored solutions, usually by local vendors. In believe that open sharing of our knowledge on this subject will bring it into perspective for many, we have prepared a series of posts including the high-level concept, data handling, similarity score, and various markers. The posts are combining business aspects as well as technical findings.
The success of the series motivated us to continue with the third edition of the Contest, starting on 4th August 2020. Although you will have time to submit your scripts until 31st October 2020, we would like to encourage you to make an early bird submission before 20th September. The third round of the Contest is introducing a new optional challenge, with dedicated prizes.
Improved safety, efficiency, and a lower environmental impact – ambitious EU project combines research and business to reshape Europe’s mining industry
The European Commission has granted EUR 8.4 million to a three-year H2020 project that develops an artificial intelligence platform for the monitoring and analysis of mine sites across Europe. The project, called Goldeneye, will develop solutions that improve safety, environmental impact and profitability of mines by creating a platform that combines earth observation technologies with on-site sensing.
The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has virtually paralyzed daily life as we know it. Even when the spread of this highly infectious disease has been halted, the world will face huge challenges getting back to ‘normal’. Therefore, we are calling for remote sensing experts, machine learning scientists and the interested public to contribute ideas and share them through the Euro Data Cube COVID-19 Custom Script Contest.
We are delighted to launch a new service providing easy access to very high-resolution data, starting with Planet and Airbus and expanding to others soon. The staged roll-out started at the beginning of April and things are running smoothly - we have ingested more than 20 000 km2 already.
