Workshop on “What very-high-resolution data beyond Pléiades and SPOT 6-7?” June 2021

11 June 2021, DINAMIS organized a survey workshop on future directions to be envisioned for very-high-resolution data to meet user needs looking beyond the current generation of Pléiades and SPOT-6-7 imagery.

In today’s fast-moving landscape, the main challenge facing DINAMIS is to retain its ability to meet national VHR imagery needs now and in the future, while reconciling the specific requirements of its user communities.

This virtual workshop aimed to identify together priorities in terms of needs and applications in relation to missions representative of current and future sensors, i.e. Pléiades-Neo, CO3D, Planet, Jilin, TerraSAR follow-on, Radarsat, etc.
