Satellites Going Local – Maritime Edition

In this 7th edition of our Satellites Going Local series, Eurisy continues to highlight the contributions of satellite applications for society, this time diving into the maritime domain.

More than 3 billion people around the world rely on blue resources for their living. But nowadays our blue world is threatened by multiple challenges such as sea level rise, pollution, algal blooming, coastal erosion, and anomalies in marine biodiversity behaviours, just to mention a few.

Space technology is an asset to help monitoring the impacts of these hazards deriving both from climate change and human activities on the seas and oceans. Satellite data provides the maritime community and its operators with actionable, reliable and near real-time information on large and remote areas otherwise difficult to reach.

The examples included in this publication provide an overview on how the integration of satellite solution can support decision and policy-maker to streamline process and take informed decisions as well as design mitigation strategies and adaptation actions. The stories collected in this booklet are meant to stimulate awareness and exchange of knowledge on the use of satellite applications.


Satellites Going Local – Culture Edition

 In this 6th edition of our Satellites Going Local series, Eurisy continues to highlight the contributions of satellite applications for society, this time taking our investigations into the cultural and creative sectors.

This new issue illustrates how satellite based technologies in particular are being used to better manage historical cities, monitor and safeguard cultural heritage and enable creative minds to generate new ways to experience culture.

The stories collected are meant to stimulate awareness and exchange of knowledge among those who are already using satellite applications and those who are interested in them. They also aim to inspire public and private actors to come up with increasingly innovative and useful services in the cultural and creative sectors.
