The contestants only need to submit an idea and not a prototype or finished product that uses high-resolution satellite data. The winner will receive €20,000 (more than $25,000) of imagery data to support the realisation of the idea. Last year’s challenge winner used the data package within Cerberus, an emergency mapping crowdsourcing game. The challenge is part of Copernicus Masters 2013, a programme to provide accurate, timely and easily accessible information to improve the management of the environment, understand and mitigate the effects of climate change and ensure civil security. Entry forms are available online. The deadline for entries is September 15, 2013.
