Learning to
look at the Earth.

Educational resource for exploring satellite images.

What is it? Satellite images and remote sensing allow us to identify the effects of natural and man-made changes that occur on Earth: fires, floods, urban development, deforestation...

Edusat explores these phenomena from space and provides us with a didactic guide to understanding the effects of global environmental change, right in the classroom.

The availability of satellite images of the entire world, with a near-daily frequency, allow for the identification and monitoring of all these natural phenomena and human activities that result in notable changes in the Earth’s surface. The Copernicus program, coordinated by the European Space Agency (ESA), offers a large amount of data for the purpose of providing a global view of the Earth’s health.

What is Remote Sensing?

Satellite images allow us to study the evolution and detect the consequences of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, forest fires, floods, glacier melting, deforestation, or the impact of urban sprawl, among others. But how are images of the Earth obtained and processed?

This process is known as Remote Sensing.

Global environmental change encompasses three well-known phenomena: the climate change, the loss of biodiversity and the change in land use and coverage. All this implies the degradation of the environment and poses a threat to the plants, animals and people that inhabit the planet.

Are you a teacher? Explore the Earth from your classroom. View the didactic guide which explains step-by-step how to work with satellite images. Put your geographical knowledge into practice and become a space explorer.

The Copernicus program for observing the Earth provides the public with a series of information concerning the environment with the goal of finding out the current state of the Earth's health.

Using the EO-Browser of the Sentinel-Hub we can explore satellite images almost in real time and identify natural and man-made phenomena in very educational manner.
