Exploiting the value in EO data – Workshop by EARSC at GWF2016

After 8 consequently years the Geospatial World Forum has gained a repute of being a not-to-be-missed conference for the professionals engaged in geospatial sector and its application domain. In this context, GWF offers a great opportunity to communicate on the results of the Copernicus Sentinels’ Products Economic Value study to a broad audience.

In the frame of the study Assessing the detailed economic benefits derived from Copernicus Earth Observation data within selected value chains, undertaken by EARSC under an assignment from ESA, we provide a bottom up assessment of economic value coming from the use of satellite data. The key difference from previous analyses is to work through the full value chain where the benefits of using EO data can be felt. The level of economic benefit from one service can be very high and touch the everyday lives of all of us. This workshop gives EARSC the possibility to communicate on the findings oof this study.
