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.
