Bringing Space Down to Earth

How can we put the vast amounts of space data to better use?

Hundreds of trillions of pixels of our planet are captured from space every day. Why isn’t everyone using it?

Join us for an inside view of the barriers to accessing space-based Earth observation data, how those barriers are being removed, and how new technology is changing the ways in which EO data is produce, accessed, and put to use. Discover the innovative ways that it is changing industries from agriculture and insurance to management of infrastructure and natural resources. And consider what it means to be a space company – and space user – rooted to Earth.

What will you do with commercial satellite imagery?

The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions in dialogue with James Slifierz.
