DataPreneur Teaser 08: Application of Space-Based Data

Welcome back! Thank you for returning to the VSDC blog. Today, we’re going to join David Perkins, our host and entrepreneur-in residence for the enlightening wrap-up of this week’s discussion about space and space-based data. In the final segment of this interview, our space experts point out the multitude of applications for space-based data; from world-wide, global-scale data, down to high-resolution parking-lot traffic density tracking.

The experts joining David again:

Dr. William Edmondson, who has spent the last 14 years performing research in the area of small satellites with a  focus on communications computing systems engineering, and technology development for SWARMS.

Dr. Kimberly Scott, Co-founder and VP of data science at Astraea, a geospatial analytics startup in the commonwealth of VA and who has an extensive background in space and space data, specifically studying galaxies and the fundamental nature of the universe.

And Dr. Bob Ash, a distinguished professor at ODU with an extensive background in space and physics, including space systems engineering, marsh exploration, and extraterrestrial resources.
