Latest news from space – who and what is looking down on us and how can satellite data be used for disaster management? – ask the experts!

Organizer(s) DHI Group

In this webinar you will get an opportunity to get answers to all your unanswered questions about Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite data. What satellites are out there in space? What can they do? When do they pass by above us? How can the data be used for disaster management and prevention? – this, and much more, you will get answers to in this QA session.

So much is going on in space these years, so before we open the floor for all your questions, you will be equipped with the latest information about data types, development and application opportunities when the ‘Latest news from Space’ is presented for the first 10 minutes.

After the introduction, the floor will be opened for ALL your questions, and two passionate satellite data experts, Rasmus Borgstrøm and Mikkel Lydholm Rasmussen, will be ready to answer your questions for half an hour.
