Hi there!

It's that time of the year again when there are plenty of opportunities to meet you in person to exchange EO ideas. Meet us at Phi-Week in Frascati and at the coming events listed below.

We are also introducing the next Sentinel Hub Custom Script Contest, EO Browser’s involvement in the spaceEU project and playing an EO Detective to Analyze Deforestation in Madagascar.


 

 
 

ESA EO Phi-Week

Join us at one of the biggest European EO events!

We are pleased to extend ESA’s invitation to Phi-Week and recommend you join our activities this week. We will hold a talk on Spatio-Temporal Deep Learning: Application to Land Cover Classification on Wednesday, September 11, and organize a side event Getting the Most Out of EO Data with the Help of Data Cube Service and Machine Learning (ML) Tools on Thursday, September 12. The side event will be full of impressive speakers from Picterra, TomTom, Development Seed, CLAAS, SpaceTec and Brockmann Consult. Follow the link below for the agenda. Don’t miss the poster session the Next Generation DataCube Service Based on Cloud-native Architecture after the side event.

The Sentinel Hub Custom Script Contest

Learn more about the awarded scripts in the first Contest and how to participate in the next one!

The success of the first Sentinel Hub Custom Script Contest organized in Spring 2019 motivated us to repeat it in Autumn, starting on October 15, 2019. Until then there is plenty of time for you to start exploring the capabilities of EO Browser, play with custom scripts and submit your awesome algorithm when the time comes. To help you get in the mood and boost your motivation we recommend reading our blog post. You will learn how easy custom scripting is and get some inspiration from scripts awarded in the first Contest.

Step into the Shoes of an EO Detective to Analyze Deforestation in Madagascar

Custom script use-case

If you would like to make custom satellite visualizations, you can read our latest blog post, where you’ll explore Madagascar deforestation by making custom scripts of varying complexity. It should be especially helpful to those not experienced in coding who would like to explore this quick and useful tool, step by step. From using only one line of code to implementing indices and classifying the data, you will learn how the process looks like from start to finish. If you want to learn more, visit our Custom Script Tutorial.

EO Browser Included in spaceEU

20440c99-e00d-11e7-a98f-06b2d989fe84%2F1568037256240-Step+into+Space.pngWe are proud to be part of spaceEU, an exciting space outreach and education project which aims to spark the interest of young people in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths). Ars Electronica, one of the project partners, presented the spaceEU exhibition ‘Step into Space’ for the very first time at the festival in Linz, Austria, last weekend. The exhibition explored the wonders of space and the impact it has in our everyday life, particularly in our fight against climate crisis. It aims to inspire our collective imagination and strive to exploration and adventure.

As part of the engagement programme, EO Browser is included in a set of educational activities and outreach events which will be implemented in ten European countries from December 2019 to October 2020: Austria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and Spain. Find out more about events, collaborators, and the European connection on the official website of the project.

 

 

Sentinel Hub at Hackathons

It's always a pleasure to observe young talented people at different hackathons, especially if they use Sentinel Hub services to tackle petabytes of satellite data. They can use a fully functional service and its unique capabilities and not waste time on downloading and preparing the data. The next chance to do so will be at the Copernicus Hackathon in Brno, Czech Republic, on September 27-29. Other hackathons in Autumn will include NASA Space Apps Challenge 2019 at more than 250 locations around the world, Copernicus Hackathon in Zagreb, Croatia, and H2020 Big Data Hackathon in Frascati, Italy.

To learn more about the reasons why Sentinel Hub is perfect for EO hackathons we recommend reading one of our previous blog posts.
