Urban Challenge Looking for Innovators

Munich, June 11, 2015 — The quality of satellite imagery is improving year by year, to the point where it is now possible to read signage and see line markings clearly. Not only has there been an improvement in visual resolution now satellites like WorldView-2 and WorldView-3 are delivering imagery in 8 spectral bands, more than the eye can see.

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 13th July this year.   For more info and to sign up for the challenge visit: http://eusi.copernicus-masters.com/
