Curated by the Lift community

Room 5+6 (Level 3)

Explore the links Human – Animals from Space is an emerging area for innovative applications and services. The ability to follow the movements of animals hour by hour from space will revolutionize our understanding of i.e. long-distance bird migrations, and could help to protect human populations from animal-borne diseases like avian flu, SARS and West Nile Virus. It will also enable numerous applications in farm management, animal husbandry and fisheries. Several already existing applications like bird strike avoidance and vector borne disease transmission monitoring and mapping will be presented.
