My GEO Innovation Community

The GEO Innovation Community MyGIC offers users the opportunity to assess the usability of Astrium Services’ imagery products for their respective applications in innovative Earth Observation projects.

This unique user group fosters innovation and research on diverse applications, where satellite imagery e.g. from our Pléiades and SPOT 6 satellites, can help solve issues and have a tremendous impact – and makes results and experiences available to all users.

Sharing Pléiades & SPOT 6 Experiences

MyGIC provides free-of-charge satellite imagery to scientific and academic organizations and private companies worldwide, following an application for project and a project selection process.

The MyGIC projects vary in nature, ranging from environmental concerns to photogrammetry applications. Their authors agree to share their image-driven work and their compelling stories with the entire community.
