The European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC) announces the launch of its industry survey for 2024, inviting Earth Observation (EO) service providers to contribute valuable insights. This comprehensive survey aims to map the state and health of companies offering EO services in Europe.
The EARSC Industry Survey is highly important for stakeholders as it helps shape sector projections and policy decisions. It is widely used by the European Commission, the European Space Agency (ESA), and Member States.
EARSC invites companies involved in satellite-derived EO data, including operators, service providers, and geospatial information providers, to participate in the survey. The insights provided by these companies are crucial in shaping the future landscape of Earth Observation (EO) services in Europe. EARSC assures participants that their data will be kept confidential and only accessible to the EARSC project team. The data will be presented in aggregated or statistical formats to ensure privacy.
EARSC will keep the survey open until March, but we encourage earlier responses consistent with the availability of the requested data.
