TanDEM-X 3D World Map Completed

The TanDEM-X three-dimensional map of Earth has finally been completed. Mountain peaks and valley floors across the globe can now be seen with an accuracy of just one metre. The global elevation model was created as part of the TanDEM-X satellite mission; it offers unprecedented accuracy compared with other global datasets and is based on a uniform database. The approximately 150 million square kilometres of land surface were scanned from space by radar sensors. “TanDEM-X has opened up a whole new chapter in the field of remote sensing. The use of radar technology based on two satellites orbiting in close formation is... (read more)

DigitalGlobe Partners with Vodafone to Create IoT for Agriculture

DigitalGlobe has announced the release of Sensing4Farming, an Internet of Things (IoT) product for smart, digital and precision agriculture created in partnership with Vodafone Spain, part of the Vodafone Group. Sensing4Farming provides crucial insights about crop health to farmers, agronomists, and agro-businesses via any device to optimise agriculture productions. Sensing4Farming utilizes data from DigitalGlobe's multispectral, high-resolution satellite imagery, which reveals information that cannot be seen by the human eye about vegetation health, such as plant age and chlorophyll concentration. Ground-based sensors deployed in crop fields by Qampo also provide data for Sensing4Farming, such as soil moisture, temperature, humidity and other agroclimatic parameters to complement...

Copernicus Masters: An Important Innovation Driver for Earth Observation

Copernicus is Europe’s most ambitious Earth observation (EO) programme and provides full free and open access to data for the development of applications in a wide variety of domains. The Copernicus Masters awards recognise applications and ideas that are using Copernicus data to tackle important challenges faced by business and society. From 1 April to 30 June, Copernicus Masters participants can submit their innovative EO ideas for solving any of the 16 challenges offered by the largest number of world-class partners since the competition started. It is estimated that investments in the programme will increase to EUR 7.5 billion by 2020,... (read more)

My First Experience - SatSummit 2017

Open, engaging, informative and diverse was how Steven Ramage found his first SatSummit in Washington D.C. The event, to examine the satellite business in support of global development, was bullshit free! My first SatSummit in Washington, D.C. was only the second ever such event. It was fabulous. Open. Engaging. Informative. Diverse. I had the privilege of sitting on a panel with ESA, NASA and the CEO of Radiant, an organisation being set up by Omidyar and the Gates Foundation to talk about open data and government, but more on that later. The event was made possible by a number of... (read more)

High-quality Aerial Imagery Helps to Unlock 5G Networks

Telecommunication operators are working at full speed to bring a 5G network to life in the early 2020s. Most operators are currently at the signal propagation planning stage and are defining optimal locations for the network nodes. Although widely used for the planning of 3G/4G networks, digital surface models generated from satellite images are insufficient for 5G antenna positioning. Another source, with required high-resolution data, is now available for the USA and large parts of Europe and Canada. 5G is the next generation of wireless network technologies. For 5G to become a reality, however, significant and fundamental changes need to... (read more)
