Copernicus Masters Urban Challenge now open for entries

16 June 2015

European Space Imaging is now accepting entries for its High-Res Urban Challenge. The challenge is part of this year’s Copernicus Masters focused on European Large Urban zones. The Copernicus Masters Competition is annually awarding prizes to innovative solutions for business and society based on Earth observation data.

This year's Challenge is looking for innovators who want to use satellite imagery in their ground-breaking product or solution to improve urban mobility. To help creators test and prove their ideas a sample data package high-quality imagery is available for registered participants.

“By offering participants the opportunity to trial real data in their solutions we hope to assist the development of quality, functioning products in which an essential element is very high-resolution satellite imagery, “ says Michaela Neumann, Director Sales and Marketing at European Space Imaging. “We encourage all developers to put their hat into the ring with their solutions. Previous participants have been very happy with the outcomes.”

The 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 the 13th July this year. For more info and to sign up for the challenge visit: http://eusi.copernicus-masters.com/
