Germany: With the improving quality of satellite imagery and satellites like WorldView-2 and WorldView-3 delivering imagery in 8 spectral bands, European Space Imaging has rolled out the High-Res Urban Challenge as part of this year’s Copernicus Masters. This year's Challenge is looking for innovators who want to use satellite imagery in a ground-breaking product or solution, focussing on European Large Urban zones.
Participants could potentially win a valuable data package of satellite imagery worth €20,000. A sample data package of almost cloud-free, 40 cm, 8-band, WorldView-2 imagery will be available for registered participants.
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 July 13, 2015.
