To take advantage of these developments European Space Imaging is offering the High-Res Urban Challenge as part of this year’s Copernicus Masters focused on European Large Urban zones. Participants could potentially win a valuable data package of satellite imagery worth 20,000 Euro.
This year’s Challenge is looking for innovators who want to use satellite imagery in their ground-breaking product or solution. To help creators test and prove their ideas a sample data package of almost cloud-free, 40 cm, 8-band, WorldView-2 imagery is available for registered participants.
By offering participants the opportunity to trial real data in their solutions we hope to assist the development of quality, functioning products in which an essential element is very high-resolution satellite imagery, “ says Michaela Neumann, Director Sales and Marketing at European Space Imaging. “We encourage all developers to put their hat into the ring with their solutions. Previous participants have been very happy with the outcomes.”
European Space Agency (ESA) supports the prize for the Copernicus Masters each year, which means that all participants have two chances to win. Each individual challenge winner automatically goes into the pre-selection to become the Copernicus Master for 2015.
The European Space Imaging High-Res Urban Challenge is open for applications until the 20th July this year.
