Big Data from space. Copernicus European Earth Observation Data supporting Maritime Navigation

10 Oct 2018
Big Data & Analytics Keynote Theatre

With the launch of Sentinel 1A Satellites in 2014 European Commission initiated its ambitious earth observation (EO) program. EO is one of the domains benefiting from huge volumes of data, especially given COPERNICUS Programme and the EU open data policy.


Big Data from Space refers to the massive spatio-temporal Earth and Space observation data collected by a variety of sensors ranging from ground based to space-borne and the synergetic use of data coming from other sources and communities. The opportunities that these data offer to multiple domains are not fully known and understood by people outside the EO community but they are contributing to create a huge economy around.


The EO open data availabillity has already contributed to generate important revenues in sectors like Agriculture, Forestry, Renewable Energy, Urban development, Ocean monitoring  or Oil & Gas . When speaking about Asia area the focus is put in a development of business around urbanization, pollution, renewable Energy, food security.


The European Commission has developed ambitious plans to tackle these challenges in a big data-enabled environment, and in this context, decided to launch the Copernicus Data and Information Access Services (DIAS) to make the integration of Copernicus data and information into flexible value chains easier and simpler- no need to download or invest in heavy processing and storage facilities. 


The future economical contribution needs to be explored but we have some ideas which look promising.
