WINNERS SPACE APP CAMP 2018
Congratulations to the winner of the seventh edition of the Space App Camp!
This year, an app that uses satellite imagery to assist urban planners won the top prize of EUR 2,500 at the Space App Camp 2018 at ESA’s Earth observation centre in Frascati, Italy. The app provides a range of data for planners, including information on green spaces, terrain and biodiversity, and more, all in one place and at an affordable price.
Huge amounts of data from space, the kind produced by the European Earth observation programme Copernicus and its fleet of Sentinel satellites, offer countless opportunities in connection with mobile applications. The Space App Camps bring programmers together to develop creative and innovative apps that make Earth observation data – particularly from Copernicus – accessible to a wide range of citizens. This unique one-week event was initiated by ESA in 2012 and has since been organised by AZO Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen.
