Content: Lecture of Robert Meisner, Communication Programme Officer for Earth Observation ESA/ESRIN in Frascati. Topic is an introduction to how satellite photography works and what it can achieve.


In the provided video, Robert Meisner explains what the role of the ESA is in the process of aquiring satellite images and their interpretations. He points out, that the ESA only has a management position. The processing of the data happens elsewhere. This was not expected by the listeners, though it could have been known before the lecture. This demonstrates the need for a search of information about the facilities to be visited before the visit takes place. Eventually, this will lead to the problem of preselecting information.
