Earth Observation

Stay up to date with IT innovation in Earth Observation! This community welcomes all Netherlands-based research and IT professionals working in Earth Observation and related domains.

We are currently building up this community. Feel free to contact us if you like to be actively involved.

This community brings together research and IT professionals in Earth Observation (EO). EO is the gathering of information about Earth’s physical, chemical and biological systems via remote sensing, usually involving satellites. As such, EO has a large societal impact, for example by allowing environmental monitoring or supporting crisis management during extreme weather events.

SURF provides compute and data services for the Dutch EO research community. In order to bring research to a higher level, SURF wants to stimulate collaboration and IT innovation in this field. We also want our computing and data infrastructure and our knowledge to better match the requirements of the community, where possible.
