How our view from space is changing the world
With beautiful imagery taken from space, Scott Larson explains the importance of our view from the heavens; the acknowledgement and rapid understanding of global change. Recorded at TEDxVancouver at Rogers Arena on November 14, 2015.
Scott works alongside a talented team of engineers, developers, and professionals to democratize the view of Earth from space — a powerful perspective that few have ever experienced. In addition to full-colour Ultra HD video and imagery captured from multiple satellites, including the International Space Station, his work is currently progressing the world’s first fully-integrated optical+radar constellation. This growing suite of cameras will deliver imagery, video and data to educators, developers, media outlets, and others. The platform API will be open source, allowing developers to access data for the creation of robust applications. From education and humanitarian aid, to disaster relief and environmental monitoring, the possibilities for the platform and its data are virtually limitless.
