Welcome to the Belgian EO website

Earth observation is part of our everyday life. But what is it? Also named remote sensing, it is all about gathering information of the Earth from a distance. This can be done by satellites, airplanes or by drones. For over 30 years, Belgian scientists have been turning satellite data in useful information, with the support of the STEREO programme. This website wants  to explain remote sensing and what researchers are doing with it to the general public. If you want to know how it is possible to see individual trees from 800 km high or simply want to enjoy looking at wonderful images, and much more, this is a good place to start. Welcome to the fascinating world of Earth Observation!
