Mobility is changing. The way people and goods move on our roads is going through its biggest transformation in decades, driven by technology, connectivity and satellite positioning. A new video from the GSA – European GNSS for Smart Mobility – explores how Europe’s flagship satellite navigation programmes EGNOS and Galileo are at the heart of this transformation, making positioning more accurate, available and reliable.
NextGEOSS, the European Data Hub and Platform funded under the Horizon 2020 Programme, is now available. It provides access to Earth Observation (EO) data to the European users’ communities.Together with a suite of platform services and Cloud resources that are seamlessly connected, it provides an integrated system for supporting applications, contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
At the 11th European Space Policy Conference in Brussels, GSA Executive Director Carlo des Dorides explained why Europe’s flagship satellite navigation system, Galileo, is a cornerstone of the strategy for a European Single Digital Economy.
Conventional methods of mapping the sea floor are slow and expensive. EU-funded researchers used satellite-derived techniques combined with crowd-sourced depth soundings to map large areas quickly and at lower cost.
