Space up your app with satellite data
05 June 2014
Calling all app developers: register today for the opportunity to spend a week at ESA developing news ideas and concepts for mobile apps using satellite Earth observation data.
During 8-15 September, ESA will welcome 20 app developers to its ESRIN centre for Earth observation in Frascati, Italy, for the third ESA App Camp.
The selected participants will learn how to bring Earth observation data - particularly coming from the European Copernicus environment-monitoring programme - to the everyday user through smartphones.
Data from the new Sentinel-1A satellite will also be made available for use during the App Camp. Sentinel-1 is the first satellite mission dedicated to the Copernicus programme, and employs an advanced radar that can see through clouds and in the dark.
