Copernicus Earth Observation Data Hackathon


Event Details

Join the first Copernicus open data hackathon in Austria!

Copernicus is a European system for monitoring the Earth.
During the hackathon, we will work with open data from two satellites: Sentinel 1 and Sentinel 2.

These satellites provide data for:
– land changes (it can map different classes of cover such as forest, crops, grassland, water surfaces and artificial covers like roads and buildings;
– water health and pollution;
– agricultural practices, to estimate crop acreage, to provide soil moisture information and to forecast yield;
– distinguishing between different crop types as well as data on numerous plant indices, such as leaf area index, leaf chlorophyll content and leaf water content;
– disaster mapping.

In other words, join us for an exciting experience developing solutions for global problems such as climate change, health challenges and food problems!

-1500 € in cash for the winning team
