The purpose of the Pléiades Users Group, which was officially launched at the 22nd ISPRS Congress in Melbourne, Australia, is to offer opportunities to assess the utility of Pléiades data for applications and to provide users a forum to exchange their feedback about the uses and performances of Pléiades.
To this end, Airbus Defence and Space has issued a call for projects period until end Sept. 2012 with a view to sharing the first results by mid-2013 at a special seminar.
Airbus Defence and Space will provide Pléiades products free of charge for all selected projects. In return, selected candidates will undertake to communicate their results to all members of the Pléiades Users Group before April 2013.
Lastly, all images shall be made available to user group members so that users not in possession of ground truth or whose projects do not make the selection may take part in the Pléiades data assessment effort.
