WHAT IS GEOSPACE
15th June 2017
Within the past decade, we've witnessed a revolution in accumulation of the so-called geospatial data. This is the product of comprehensive Earth observation missions such as the ESA's Sentinel programs as well as the growing numbers of CubeSats. The companies such as the California based Planet Labs Inc., and the Danish GomSpace ApS, have plans to construct mega constellations consisting of several hundreds CubeSats in the low-Earth orbit within a few years. The accumulated geospatial data will have an extensive potential for the exploration of our planet. This potential does not merely arise from geospatial data becoming increasingly available, but also as a result of development in computer technology that leads to advanced data processing techniques such as signal treatment and statistical learning techniques. Our goal with this project is to uncover the possibilities of a close collaboration between the Department of Geoscience and the Department of Engineering of Aarhus University and GomSpace ApS. This collaboration will examine the utilisation of geospatial data for scientific purposes such as investigations of possible influences of the Sun on Earth, formation and development of the Norwegian mountains and surface features like meteor craters and viking fortresses. The collaboration will further exploit scientific results in industrial projects such as optimizing agriculture gains and predictions of regions containing useful minerals.
We expect this project will not only lead to a strong collaboration between the involved parties in terms of data driven research activities, but also lead to concrete funding applications to organisations such as Innovationsfonden and Horizon 2020. Especially Innovationsfonden put significant focus on the downstream utilization of satellite data in its latest "Call for Grand Solutions".
In order to increase the activity level for Horizon 2020 applications, the network wishes to apply EUopStart grants for boosting this activity
