ESA and SAP look to World Space Alliance
26 April 2018
With the launch of Sentinel-3B, the first set of Sentinels for Copernicus is now in orbit delivering an almost mind-boggling amount of data. While this wealth of information advances environmental monitoring, it also opens up huge business opportunities. To help bring these data to market, ESA and SAP have joined forces to create the World Space Alliance.
ESA and SAP first teamed up two years ago to close the gap between traditional Earth observation and the digitalised business world.
Building on this fruitful partnership, the two organisations today signed another agreement to strengthen the use of digital technologies and Earth observation data for a range of business sectors.
