The imagery and data has been captured by a number of satellite projects.

The UK Space Agency is making free satellite images available to the public sector in a unique new trial.

The agency’s Space for Smarter Government Programme (SSGP) is providing the commercial archives of images and radar data from a satellite data storage system run out of the Satellite Applications Catapult in Oxfordshire.

The data set will be available for free for three years.

The Agency said it hopes to “stimulate the next wave of satellite enabled application development”,

UK Space Agency is also hoping popular adoption will help spur further interest and growth in the UK’s space industry, which employs over 40,000.
