“Earth Observation helps us to work more intelligently with our environment. Helps us to manage the scarce resources that we have and to optimise mundane things. You can avoid traffic by using intelligent satellite navigation systems that link congestion with mapping and automatic routing algorithms. This makes your life more convenient but also reduces the amount of time that your car is on the road and burning petrol…leading to a reduction in CO2. This same philosophy is happening in the natural environment too, managing farming to help optimise food production and reduce the impacts on the world.”
