Preserving data for our future


Satellites provide vast quantities of data. While these data are processed and used by scientists and analysts to understand and monitor Earth, they are also carefully archived. Through its Heritage Data Programme, we ensures the preservation of and access to archived Earth observation satellite data for scientists, policy makers and value-adding companies. This allows us to look back at the history of planet Earth, and plan for the future.

  1. I am archiving history of me and my family, and it is very challenging task, even if I have to scan and describe a few thousand photos and documents, convert several dozens of vhs tapes, so a few houndred gigabytes every day is unimaginable to me, but good that someone can do it. 😉

  2. This gives me hope that incase a life ending event were to take place, our history would be preserved.

    Are there backups? Wouldn't want what happened what happened when troops of Caesar burned the great library.

  3. This is a classic example of Soft Disclosure – we are on the edge of extinction. A Blue Ocean Event will happen this year or next and a biosphere collapse could happen any time with a Methane bomb from the warm, Artic ocean/melting permafrost in East Siberia. Why keep records? Humanity is going to be gone. The Truth – no more "Soft Disclosure".
