Welcome!

Welcome to the Belgian Platform on Earth Observation, an initiative of the Helpdesk for Earth Observation which is a service of the Space Research and Applications Division of the Belgian Federal Science Policy Office.

We want to provide you the most possible complete and relevant information on remote sensing activities with an emphasis on Belgian research in the domain.

The About Section contains information about the Belgian Earth Observation programmes (present and history), about Remote Sensing in general as well as contact and team information.

In the News Section you will find beside the latest news an event calendar and a list of remote sensing related opportunities (promotions, job offers, open calls,...). An overview of the most recent additions to this website can also be consulted in that section.

The Directory Section is a repertory of Remote Sensing actors, Federal Science Policy projects, most commonly used satellites and sensors, as well as a variety of resources and data.

The Expert Zone is accessible only for registered members. It gives access to specific documents, registration forms for our events...
