Welcome to our web site featuring our activity with the European Space Agency!
We are working with the European Space Agency to determine the interest and potential use of Earth Observation technology both for the general population of the planet and for specific industries such as fishing. It is our intent to develop a smartphone/tablet app to bring you near real time images, climate information and videos from the planet's oceans. But we need your input! Please click the button opposite to take the survey.
Welcome to our web site featuring our activity with the European Space Agency!We are working with the European Space Agency to determine the interest and potential use of Earth Observation technology both for the general population of the planet but also for specific industries such as fishing. Earth Observation satellite technology offers huge potential as a source of general information for people interested in the oceans but also for the fishers that use the oceans for their livelihood. For instance not many people are aware that the Aurora Borealis turns the ocean different colours at different times and the intensity of these colours are prime indicators of fish stocks. This phenomenon occurred off the south west coast of Ireland in Oct 2015.
We now ask you to participate with us in identify areas of this wilderness that are of interest to you. We also ask you to tell us other ocean information you would like to see on our proposed smartphone / tablet app. It is our intent to develop and deploy the app based on the results of this crowdsourcing exercise with you the user!
We believe that the combination of open satellite images, our mapping technology, and the involvement of the public at the benefit of earth’s environment can offer a valuable additional piece of the puzzle towards the realization of REDD+. We therefore aim to develop a service that benefits organization active in REDD+ and the conversation.
The ESA has been dedicated to observing Earth from space ever since the launch of its first Meteosat meteorological satellite in 1977. Following the success of this first mission, the subsequent series of Meteosat satellites, ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat provided us with a wealth of valuable data about Earth, its climate and changing environment.
