Space App Camp

Event Type Workshop
Start-End 17/09/2018 -  24/09/2018
Objective Increasing numbers of mobile phone users is bringing mobility to the business with mobile apps. Additionally, a huge amount of data from space offers countless opportunities in connection with mobile applications.

But hang on a minute – isn’t the European Space Agency a bunch of astronauts and rocket scientists? What does ESA have to do with mobile app development? A lot! From space, our planet’s atmosphere, land, and water can be monitored for multiple application fields. This is where the Space App Camp comes in: It’s a chance to make the resulting information accessible to a broad audience and create value in the process!

For the seventh time, ESA is inviting 20 developers to its ESRIN location in Frascati, Italy, including travel expenses and accommodation – and you can be one of them! To become selected is up to you! Your participation of the App Camp will depend on the creativity of your previous works with regard to their content, usability, design, and underlying business concepts, so show us the best apps you’ve developed

Seize this opportunity to meet with like-minded people, create mobile applications using satellite data, and gain insight into ESA’s work!

The goal of the Space App Camp is to produce mobile apps using Earth observation data on smartphones. In doing so, it focuses on leveraging the possibilities offered by the European Earth observation programme Copernicus, which is currently providing became operational with the launch of the first Sentinel Satellite in April 2014 and today already provides data from seven satellites. The latest member of ESA’s Earth observation satellites, Sentinel-3B, was successfully launched on 25 April 2018 from Russia. Two weeks later Sentinel-3B has already delivered impressive first images from its ocean and land colour instruments. The oceans are the main focus of the mission. In addition, large-scale changes in land areas are also monitored and recorded.
