Upcoming fall, Texas, USA
Whether you are studying urbanization or snow and ice cover (e.g. Lake Balaton, Hungary), monitoring food security and the sustainable use of groundwater (e.g. Saudi Arabian pivot irrigation), assisting with post-fire detection of burn scars (e.g. Portugal), or another innovative application, we hope you have come to rely on PROBA-V as a trusted source of Earth Observation data and cloud-based processing. For the PROBA-V programme, 2017 marked a number of important steps forward, with the completion of the first reprocessing (collection 1 or C1), the extension of the mission until 2019, a new web site and the second version of the Exploitation Platform, just to name a few. For next year, we already look forward to the PROBA-V Symposium (29-31 May, Ostend, Belgium), more synergies with the Copernicus Sentinel satellites (e.g. in our Belgian platform Terrascope) and to just keep going after the platform’s fifth anniversary!
