On November 9th, 2015, satellite industry and the global development leaders came together for one day of presentations and discussions about satellite imagery and data processing capabilities.
Satellite imagery and big data tools provide powerful insights into issues central to global development: climate change, population growth, and natural resource availability. We are just scratching the surface of what is possible.
If you’re interested in the future of satellite imagery to solve global challenges, follow #SatSummit on Twitter for information on the next event.
We'll have a mix of panels and short ignite presentations throughout the day. Panels will explore the oportunities to better bridge the earth observation and development communities. Ignite presentations will highlight real world applications of satellite imagery for development or discuss imagery collection methods, analysis and distribution.
