Earth Snapshot Participating in GMES Masters 2012 Competition41.8N 12.4E
Chelys is taking part in the GMES Masters European Earth Monitoring Competition 2012 for the second year in a row. Last year, Chelys’ Satellite Rapid Response System (SRRS), which participated in the category “Emergency Management Services”, was the competition’s overall winner of the “Best Service Challenge”. Thank you to all of you who voted for us!
This year, Chelys is competing once again, this time for this very Earth Snapshot portal, in the category “Climate Change”. Every day, Chelys generates hundreds of real-time photorealistic images from satellite data, allowing us to monitor environmental issues such as desertification, glacial melt, and deforestation. While such images often remain unseen in datastorage, we analyse, describe and publish them daily here on our Earth Snapshot portal. As such, Earth Snapshot hopes to raise awareness on climate change, providing images and information useful for specialists and non-specialists alike.
If you’ve enjoyed Earth Snapshot over the years, please VOTE for our service at GMES Masters, and help Chelys increase public and scientific awareness of environmental issues and provide more information useful for combating detrimental forms of climate change.
