The objective of the session is to bring the IT community closer to EO, for a common understanding of the related challenges and market opportunities, and to find complementarities and synergies to tackle the respective challenges.

An ‘Earth Observation Big Data White Paper’ was drafted by the working Subgroup for EO within BDVA, highlighting the most important aspects related to big data in EO, the impact that big data can have in different economic sectors, and the needs that can be covered by the IT community in the view of better exploitation of this data.
