FOSS4G2019 Bucharest has in its foundation the belief that we live fortunate times having access to unprecedented technological and informational resources.
For the first time in human history, we have an authentic opportunity to understand our changing environment and thus to make the right decisions for our future. True to our belief and with your generous help, we are launching today the EO Data Challenge, a competition inviting startups, developers, students and researchers to imagine and build valuable open source applications using large volumes of EO data and state-of-the art technologies.
With the FOSS4G EO Data Challenge, we are challenging startups, developers, students and researchers to come up with useful, valuable or interesting open source applications using large volumes of EO data (and their evolution in time) and state-of-the art technologies (AI/ML, HMC, STAC, data cube, COG). Linking of EO data with other sources of open data (e.g. OpenStreetMap, Copernicus Services – Land, Atmosphere, Climate) is highly encouraged. Our voluntary mentors will guide the process to mature and demonstrate your ideas.
If you want to join the challenge as a mentor, as a sponsor or IaaS provider, please send us a message at email@example.com.
