WHAT IT´S ALL ABOUT

Increasing numbers of mobile phone users is bringing mobility to the business with mobile apps. Additionally, a huge amount of data from space offers countless opportunities in connection with mobile applications.

But hang on a minute – isn’t the European Space Agency a bunch of astronauts and rocket scientists? What does ESA have to do with mobile app development? A lot! From space, our planet’s atmosphere, land, and water can be monitored for multiple application fields. This is where the Space App Camp comes in: It’s a chance to make the resulting information accessible to a broad audience and create value in the process!

For the sixth time, ESA is inviting 20 developers to its ESRIN location in Frascati, Italy – including travel expenses and accommodation. The Space App Camp is a unique opportunity for app developers to meet with like-minded people, create mobile applications using satellite data, and gain insight into ESA’s work.

The goal of the Space App Camp is to produce mobile apps using Earth observation data on smartphones. In doing so, it focuses on leveraging the possibilities offered by the European Earth observation programme Copernicus, which became operational with the launch of the first Sentinel Satellite in April 2014.

In 2017 participants of the Space App Camp hat the unique opportunity to use the tools that are being developed for the H2020 project   and to provide the organising consortium with valuable user feedback. Learn more about the tools and the project at: www.app-lab.eu.
