EO-based services to support humanitarian operations: Project Kick-off meeting @ Z_GIS
October 1 marked the launch of the FFG project EO4HumEn. Next to three academic partners (Univ Salzburg, Z_GIS and Dep. of Geography and Geology, as well as Univ Tübingen), the project involves Doctors without Borders (MSF, Section Austria) as one of the world-leading NGOs in the humanitarian aid domain.
EO4HumEn will provide operational services and dedicated geo-spatial information products derived from Earth observation (EO) and GIS data. The ASAP-9 funded 30-months project was kicked off Monday, 7 Oct 2013 in Salzburg at Z_GIS premises (Techno-Z).
