A diver’s dream coming true: high-resolution water quality maps of diving sites, updated daily. The data are provided by EOMAP, a DLR spin-off that uses Earth observation data from satellites. Not only for divers but also for water protection.
In case of disaster, Mother Nature shows no mercy. However, thanks to latest overview maps generated from satellite data, fast and effective help is possible. They are established by the DLR Center for Satellite Based Crisis Information and by the European Copernicus Emergency Management Service within the charter “Space and Major Disasters”.
Disoriented at the airport? How can I get to the gate? Online on board via broadband Internet? Flying greener? DLR makes substantial contributions to researching and fostering indoor navigation (NavVis), optimisation of traffic flows at airports (TOMS and TAM), Internet via satellite (SANTANA) and more economic aircraft engines.
What does the brochure of the travel business actually reveal? Or better: what does it withhold? Those who rely on the view from above that satellites always have, receive a better impression of what is awaiting them at the holiday resort. Thanks to “MetOp” and “Copernicus”, for example.
Lying on the beach while planning a tour to the heartland on the smartphone? Hiking in the mountains is fun if all conditions are just right: Where are the most attractive routes? Will there be enough (optionally too much or too less) snow? Do we have to expect a sudden change in weather? And what about the situation on the road for approaching? Clever apps will help. And they are based on, for example, data of remote sensing satellites such as “WorldView” and “Rapid Eye”.
