The Urbansat app won the 2018 Space App Camp held from 17-24 September in Frascati, Italy.
The app aims to guide greener, more ecological urban planning. It provides a range of data for planners, including information on green spaces, terrain and biodiversity and more, all in one place and at an affordable price. The app’s map interface has a drag and drop feature, which would allow users to compare scenarios pre and post build for their construction projects, through the generation of relevant data, largely derived from Sentinel satellites. This would allow them to see the anticipated impact of constructing a building on local air quality, for example.
