4 KEY DOMAINS SERVING THE PLANET
Faced with wide-reaching environmental and political challenges, governments need reliable tools and accurate in-situ analysis to inform their decisions.
Telespazio France is the driving force behind EarthLab Galaxy, the first global geoinformation cluster of environmental monitoring centres that aims to achieve effective results for the economy, populations and the environment.
EarthLab Galaxy’s goal is to:
- Provide relevant satellite tools
- Collect tangible data
- Supply custom services in response to targeted needs
To this end, Telespazio France deploys space and image processing software experts to aid local specialists and research scientists. EarthLab products are flexible and can be tailored to the user’s special needs.
Today, 3 EarthLab centres are operational, each focused on specific domains and values.
EarthLab Aquitaine’s solutions, built around Earth-observation data from satellites, unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and ground sensors, are designed to help viticulture and silviculture professionals with their day-to-day environmental and economic decisions. They also serve efforts to protect coastlines.
As a certified training centre, EarthLab Aquitaine’s philosophy is geared towards providing close learning support.
Pursuing a collaborative approach focused on tackling real-world problems, EarthLab Aquitaine’s experts offer a range of innovative services and training.
