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.

Also did you know that the Earth Observation technology can give you access to you real time activity from the polar region of the world.....regions that are hostile to most of the human race but when viewed from afar, provide captivating and fascinating insights of the marine and wildlife habitats  of this panoramic landscape and its inhabitants. These insights provide valuable data to many aspects of the research world and it is our intent to provide you with satellite imagery and real time video clips from these regions ....just to allow you see and look first hand at this majestic and stunning world of the Polar Oceans!
TAKE OUR SURVEY
Our vision is to develop and deploy app and tablet technology that will bring to you first hand real time information on this wonderful wilderness! It is also our intent to build similar real time capability of ocean habitats than can aid our fishing industry by being able to predict lucrative fishing ground from Earth Observation Satellites. We now ask you to participate with us to 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 this specifically designed app. It is our intent to develop and deploy the app based on the results of this crowdsourcing exercise with you the user!

But first we want to provide you with some information on the Earth Observation technology. Below you will see details of the European Space Agency’s Living Planet Programme which explains Earth Observation and its importance in the modern world we live in. Next we provide you some information on the phenomenon of Crowdsourcing and its inordinate capacity to bring together ideas, information and knowledge from a large volume of people known as the crowd. Crowdsourcing is the digital mechanism to find out what it is the world wants. So we want to hear from you on your interests.  Lastly then we give you an example as to how Crowdsourcing has worked in the past for generation of ideas and information for projects at the European Space Agency. So come on!!.....lets hear from you! ! 
TAKE OUR SURVEY
An important objective of our project requires expert opinion from the Fishing Industry. Thoughts on how you think Earth Observation and it's activities can aid you are invaluable to us. Continued global monitoring of the marine environment can provide a wealth of information with regards to fish productivity, marine life and much more.  Please click opposite to take our short survey.

Crowd Sourcing Service

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's Living Planet Programme

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.
