SnapPlanet app wins top prize at Space App Camp
28 February 2017
Developers of an app that combines the increasing availability of satellite images with social networking took home the top prize at this year's Space App Camp in Barcelona.
The App Camp offers access to the latest space data and the SAP Cloud Platform to European app developers, who work to make the information accessible to a broad audience.
As Europe's Copernicus programme continues to launch the Sentinel satellites – such as Sentinel-2B set for lift-off next week - transforming their data into information to benefit citizens poses both a challenge and an opportunity. The App Camp is an occasion for developers to bring the data from these and other satellites to the everyday user via mobile apps.
