Planetek Italia and European Space Imaging support earthquake emergency
Planetek Italia and European Space Imaging support earthquake emergency operations with very high-resolution satellite images.
European Space Imaging and its long-term partner Planetek Italia sprang into action to support disaster relief efforts by supplying the first available very high-resolution satellite imagery to emergency services and the media just hours after the recent earthquake struck Italy. The imagery was captured by the WorldView-2 satellite over the affected region showing the extent of the damages caused. The high-resolution imagery was immediately made available to the Italian Emergency Services.
