BlackBridge and DLR continue support of German remote sensing research
04 March 2014
BlackBridge has taken over the operations of the RapidEye Science Archive (RESA) pursuant to an agreement with the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The project is funded by the German Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
RESA was initially operated by DLR's Remote Sensing Data Center, aiming at supporting scientific research projects within Germany by providing RapidEye imagery free of charge. Since 2009, the RESA program has allowed Germany-based scientists to benefit from BlackBridge's RapidEye archive, which currently holds more than 5 billion km2 of five-metre imagery.
The complete RESA data archive currently consists of approximately 20 million km2 of RapidEye imagery and is available to all registered RESA users through a cloud-based solution developed by BlackBridge. Researchers can apply for access to the RESA archive at http://resa.blackbridge.com/register.html.
