The ESA App Camp is inviting developers to Barcelona from 25 Feb - 3 Mar 2015 for an event set to culminate in an awards ceremony at the Mobile World Congress. The participants will be selected at six simultaneous Appathons across Europe on 24-25 Jan.
From space, our planet’s atmosphere, land, and water can be monitored for multiple application fields. This is where the ESA App Camp comes in: It challenges developers to create innovative applications that will make Earth observation data accessible to a broad audience and create value in the process. Participants in Barcelona will have access to the SAP HANA Cloud Platform that enables developers to build, extend, and run applications on SAP HANA in the cloud. With its unmatched capability to process big data in high speed and its built-in geospatial functionality, it is the natural choice for running earth observation applications. Experience in integrating such data or using the SAP HANA Cloud Platform is not required to participate in the preceding Appathons.
