UK data hub will maximize benefits of Europe's EO program
London, UK (SPX) Mar 25, 2015
The UK is set to host a world-class data facility that will give UK scientists full access to a wealth of new Earth observation data from Europe's cutting-edge Copernicus programme. Europe's most ambitious Earth observation (EO) programme to date, Copernicus is launching a family of satellites, called Sentinels, that will provide accurate, timely and easily accessible information to improve the management of our environment, understand and mitigate the effects of climate change and ensure civil se ... read more
