Ancillary data might provide additional information to conventional remote sensing imagery analysis. Experiences from space and security.
Wednesday 30th October at 15:00 CEST
What: When running an image analysis to assess a situation and support the decision-making process, it is of utmost importance to have the most complete set of information possible. Other data sources as social media, open data – e.g. open maps, in situ - can offer a valid support to complement satellite data to know what is happening in a specific area. Ancillary data might provide additional information to conventional remote sensing imagery analysis, although it is also very important to check that the data sources are trustworthy and deal with large amounts of data.
Why now: Because the new paradigm in Earth observation opens the possibility of using many different data sources and the implementation of innovative technologies to support the data analysis.
Who is it for: All actors: policy-makers, academia, and members of the private sector with an interest in Earth Observation. Particularly for developers and analysts interested in complementing their analysis with ancillary data (e.g. social media, open data)
