Exploring the Sentinels' potential
19 September 2013
ESA is sponsoring an initiative to explore the possible benefits that the Copernicus programme's Sentinel satellites can bring to geo-information communities in over 20 European countries.
The initiative, led by the European Umbrella Organisation for Geo-Information, Eurogi, explores the potential interest of the community for Copernicus products and services based on space data.
Geo-information - or GI - can benefit from the integration of Earth observation data and products. The Sentinel missions, being developed for the Copernicus programme, are expected to complement traditional GI techniques, providing new possibilities.
