The European Space Agency is organising a
'Big data from Space' event to address the barriers that
hamper an effective use of large volumes of Earth
observation data. The event will focus on issues associated
with the organisation and delivery of large volumes of
contemporary and historical Earth observations, either
space-based or from ground (including ubiquitous
information-sensing mobile devices, aerial sensory
technologies, wireless sensor networks).
The event will be held June 5-7, 2013 in Rome, Italy.
Information is available from the event web site.
