The new version of ESA Eduspace website: A multi-lingual Earth Observation resource for secondary and tertiary education

Αντώνιος Μουρατίδης, C. Stewart, N. Ackerman, F. Sarti, M. Talevi, J. Lichtenegger, Sorensen Brogger


The ESA Eduspace website was developed to introduce Earth observation techniques and applications to secondary school students, although some material is also suited for undergraduate university level. Since its launch in 1998, it has provided an invaluable educational resource, by making available catalogues of Earth imagery and a sophisticated image processing software package called LEOWorks, which enables satellite imagery to be manipulated and analysed on school computers. The cornerstones of the website are the case studies. They provide teachers and students with examples of in-depth analysis within a particular theme. The background information and varied exercises provide a valuable source of ideas on how to introduce Earth observation from space into the classroom. Eduspace is currently available in nine languages: English, French, German, Danish, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Greek.
