ESA Space App Camp 2015
11 September 2015
ESA's fourth Space App Camp starts on Monday, with 23 professional app developers from all across Europe at the Agency's facility in Frascati, Italy.
Huge amounts of data from space - the kind produced by the European Earth observation Copernicus programme and its Sentinel satellites - offer countless opportunities for global challenges, in connection with mobile applications.
The Space App Camp unites programmers to develop creative and innovative smartphone apps, which make Earth observation data accessible to a wide range of people. ESA will provide access to satellite data for developing mobile applications (Android and iOS). The goal is to bring Earth observation data - particularly coming from the European Copernicus environment-monitoring programme - to the everyday user through smartphones.
