Join the Sentinel Hub Webinar: Use of EO Data in Search and Rescue

Join us on February 27th 2023 at 4pm CET and discover the incredible power of Earth Observation (EO) data for search and rescue missions! Our special guest, Benjamin Kuo, will share his expertise on the various types of imagery data available, including commercial options from Airbus, Maxar, and Capella, as well as open Sentinel data. You'll get a first-hand look at the pros, cons, and challenges of working with EO data, and hear inspiring examples of how satellite data has aided in successful search and rescue operations. Don't miss this exciting opportunity - secure your spot today!

For our next webinar we will host Benjamin Kuo, a technology enthusiast, rose to fame in April 2021 when he used EO data to successfully geolocate a missing hiker who had gotten lost in the Angeles Forest, sending the search and rescue team to the right location, making it possible to get the hiker home safe and sound. The entire process took him less than 15 minutes. This was neither his first nor his last similar experience. Just about anyone can do this, with the use of openly accessible tools and data. Benjamin will share his experience and some funny stories to make it easier for you to do the same.

General agenda

  •     The potential of using EO data for search and rescue operations
  •     Various types of imagery and how they can be used - from commercial Airbus, Maxar and Capella data to the open Sentinel data
  •     The good, the bad and the ugly of working with data
  •     Examples of satellite data that may have been useful in search and rescue operations in recent years

After Benjamin's presentation the Q&A session will follow. To answer as many relevant questions on the topic as possible, Pierre Markuse and Grega Milčinski, the co-creator of Sentinel Hub, will also help and share their expertise.
