The use of "earth observation" technology is already common in government and will become mainstream within ten years, according to a UK government chief scientist.

Earth observation data is gathered by satellites capturing images from space. Planet, a UK company specialising in the technology, operates satellites that together take photos of every part of the globe once a day.
