The ISPRS is an organisation devoted to the development of international cooperation for the advancement of remote sensing and its applications and the ISPRS Student Consortium is an important connection between academic research and the industry.
Winners of the competition will benefit from the wide area coverage of 22m resolution DMC data and the increased temporal resolution of the DMC constellation. Our data is used for all sorts of applications from forestry to urban planning and we look forward to seeing how the winners use this data.
To be in with a chance of winning, students must put together a presentation on their proposed use of the imagery and why they think it’s worthy of study. Competition winners will be selected by an ISPRS committee and awarded up to 10 tiles each from the DMCii catalogue.
The deadline is almost upon us (31st April), so if you’re an ISPRS Student Consortium member and interested, get you entry in now by submitting a 1-2 page proposal by e-mail to elenastudent (at) hotmail (dot) com.

Good luck with the entries!
About DMC International Imaging Ltd
DMC International Imaging Ltd (DMCii) is a UK-based supplier of remote sensing data products and services for international Earth Observation (EO) markets. DMCii supplies programmed and archived optical satellite imagery provided by the multi-satellite Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC). DMCii’s data is primarily used in a wide variety of commercial and government applications including agriculture, forestry and environmental mapping, which benefit from reliable high temporal resolution optical imagery.
In partnership with the UK Space Agency and the other DMC member nations (Algeria, China, Nigeria, Turkey and Spain), DMCii works with the International Charter ‘Space and Major Disasters’ to provide free satellite imagery for humanitarian use in the event of major international disasters such as tsunamis, hurricanes, fires and flooding.
DMCii was formed in October 2004 and is a subsidiary of Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL), the world leader in small satellite technology. SSTL designed and built the DMC with the support of the UK Space Agency and in conjunction with the other DMC Consortium member nations listed above.
