Workshop Overview

Satellite and space technology is increasingly being used to further the productivity of agricultural systems to meet the food requirements of a global population predicted to exceed more than 9 billion in 2050. New global data and service providers such as the European navigation system and remote sensing programme, Galileo and Copernicus respectively, are coming online, and the UK has positioned itself to take advantage of any potential disruptive change.

The aim of this workshop is to promote the use of open satellite data in agriculture and to inform the user community about the latest developments and future plans for the Catapult’s CEMS cloud computing network and the UK Sentinel data hub.
