Space App Camp 2017: Creating Mobile Apps with Big Data from Space

The European Space Agency (ESA) is inviting 20 developers to the Space App Camp 2017 at their ESRIN location in Frascati, Italy for free. In order to make Earth observation (EO) data accessible to a wide range of citizens, the Space App Camp annually hosts programmers from all across Europe.

During this event the exchange of ideas with like-minded people and tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges with big data from space are the main goals. The Space App Camp covers accommodation, flight expenses, as well as food and beverages.

Former Space App Camp Winner Saturnalia Creates Further Spin-Off

Saturnalia, the Space App Camp winner 2016, demonstrated how EO can play a major role in different fields. Inspired by the landscape of the hosting venue, Saturnalia designed a solution to monitor vine growth from space and from ground. By using a sophisticated model to predict wine quality before bottling, the participating investors, distributors and wine experts receive a time advantage over review-based wine pricing. After the App Camp, Daniele De Vecchi continued investing in the idea launched in Frascati. Ticinum Aerospace, a spin-off company from the University of Pavia, Italy, took Saturnalia on-board and supported its development.
