Astrium Services Opens up Pléiades Data for Project Evaluation

To this end, Astrium Services has issued a call for projects with a plan to share the first results by mid-2013 at a special seminar. To participate, applicants just need to register online at www.astrium-geo.com/PleiadesUsersGroup. There, they may submit a site for which reference terrain data is available – for example, ground control points, a DEM, 3D model, land-use/land-cover or cadastral data – and briefly describe their assessment project. Preference will be given to projects ready to make their reference terrain data available to the Pléiades Users Group.

Projects may be submitted until 30 September 2012.

Astrium Services will provide Pléiades products free of charge for all areas of interest in selected projects. In return, selected candidates agree to communicate their results to all members of the Pléiades Users Group before April 2013. Lastly, all images will be made available to users group members, so that users not in possession of terrain data or whose projects do not make the selection, may take part in the Pléiades data assessment effort.

For more information, contact PleiadesUsersGroup@astrium-geo.com PleiadesUsersGroup@astrium-geo.com or go to www.astrium-geo.com/PleiadesUsersGroup.
