Space, Scotland and (Trans)Planetary Ecology: How Space is Changing our World-view?

Satellites are changing the way we perceive the natural environment and life on Earth. From the protection of wildlife, mapping the climate change or disaster relief, remote sensing from space is enabling us to monitor most of Earth's surface in near real-time allowing for a very different perspective on our planet and the global consequences of local actions. A lot of this new wave of hardware design and data analysis is happening right here in Scotland. In this talk, we will examine some of the main trends in Earth Observation, as well as showcase many of the local players in the global Space Data industry - where Edinburgh's cluster of analytics companies punches far above its weight in shaping the future of our (trans)planetary ecology.
