Bringing Earth observation to the everyday user
15 September 2014
Using satellites for improving the exploitation of water resources is just one of the innovative ideas developed over the week-long 'camp' dedicated to creating mobile apps drawing on Earth observation data.
Twenty developers from 11 countries convened at ESA's ESRIN centre in Frascati, Italy, last week for the third annual App Camp.
The goal was to bring Earth observation data - particularly coming from the European Copernicus environment-monitoring programme - to the everyday user through smartphones.
