Free satellite data to help tackle public sector challenges
25 October 2018
The UK Space Agency's Space for Smarter Government Programme (SSGP) will provide access to archives of images and radar data for research and development projects.
This will stimulate further growth in the UK's world-leading space industry, which already employs around 40,000 people, while benefitting the public sector in areas such as planning and development.
The images will provide an unprecedented level of detail of major British cities, transport networks, national parks and energy infrastructure.
