Earth Observation

Following its successful launch in October 2008, the Thai Earth Observation Satellite (THEOS) collects high-resolution images which are transferred from a North Pole station across the Nordic research network to GÉANT, and then across TEIN3 to Thailand and other regional nodes for analysis and deployment in cartography, land use, coastal zone monitoring and flood risk management.

A Memorandum of Understanding between GISDTA, the Thai Space Agency, and DANTE on fostering collaboration to promote the use of the GÉANT and TEIN3 networks by THEOS was signed on 5 June 2009 in Cambridge.
