Poster 'Belgian Cities seen from space'

The new millennium saw the dawn of a new era for Earth observation. A new generation of satellites with very high resolution sensors (from 4 to 1m) aboard offered new possibilities due to the aerial photograph-like quality of the images.

In view of promoting the use of satellite images and particularly images produced by these VHR satellites, the Belgian science policy published the poster 'Belgian cities seen from space' in 2000. This poster, produced by the University of Liège showed images of Brussels, Liège and Ghent. They have been processed in natural colours and were obtained from Ikonos images. The poster was part of the 'City promotion' project, an Internet site designed to promote these three cities on the Web by means of satellite imagery.
