Rocket in your pocket selected by EARSC as the European Earth Observation Product of the Year

For the first year, under the umbrella of the EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation ConnectinGEO project, the EARSC competition “European EO product of the year” rewarded a company which has developed the most innovative product integrating an element of open data.

During the whole process about 16 companies got interested in the award and the finalists were: AnsuR Technologies (NO): GEO-ASIGN: the solutions for communication of operational EO data, Jeobrowser (FR): Rocket: the Earth in your pocket, Noveltis (FR): TIPS- Tidal Prediction Services: current and water elevation now only a click away and Planetek Italia (IT): Rheticus displacement: monitoring of terrain surface movements.

EARSC thereby recognised “Rocket in your pocket” by Jeobrowser as the product which has best followed the jury criteria:

  • commercial product integrating an element of open data resources
  • type of innovation of the product
  • challenge: problem to be solved and solution this product will solve
  • expected impact and clients to address

Rocket in your pocket The rocket application provides a unique entry point to search, visualize and download Earth Observation products from various catalogs. collections are available : for search : Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, Landsat 8, SPOT 6-7 and Pleiades images for download : Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 and Landsat 8 data. The database is updated daily from the CNES PEPS platform (Sentinels) and from the USGS platform (Landsat). One of the coolest feature is the density result map. Basically, each result of a search request is represented as a density layer : the red part indicates a high density of results and the blue part a low density of results.

EARSC represents the Earth Observation geo-information services companies in Europe. Today
EARSC has 75 members coming from more than 22 countries in Europe. Our members include
both commercial operators of EO satellites, IT, downstream and value-adding companies. The
sector plays a key role in providing value-added geo-spatial information to its customers in
Europe and the world. In 2014, the revenue of the European EO services sector is estimated to be
around €900m for approximatively 450 companies and giving work to over 6500 highly skilled
employees. www.earsc.org
