Tim Van Achte and Yves D’Eer (Campus Vesta partners within E2mC) attended a satellite data workshop in Ghent on March 5th 2018. Organised by the ever inspiring city platform #AppsForGhent, this activity formed part of a bigger initiative #ghentinspace. Tim and Yves looked at how these practices can be valuable in emergency management at the city level, in function of the research and development on sensors, social media and crowdsourcing that is being done as part of the E2mC project.
Tim Van Achte made a great and comprehensive blog post about the event, which is accessible here. Tim's post was later relayed by the event's organizers to all participants as well as by the European Environment Agency to the Copernicus community.
