Living Wales Showcase

On Friday 31st May 2019, Airbus Endeavr Wales attended the launch of a new 'Living Wales' exhibition at The Centre for Alternative Technology near Machynlleth in Powys.  

Living Wales is a world leading project that aims to capture the states and dynamics of the Welsh landscape, in near real-time, historically and into the future through use of Earth Observation data. Professor Elizabeth Treasure, Vice-Chancellor of Aberystwyth University opened the event before Professor Richard Lucas presented an overview of the Living Wales project and invited attendees to visit the dynamic and interactive exhibition, see demonstrations of the Living Wales technology and take a guided tour of the Centre of Alternative Technology and its' spectacular setting. 

The exhibition, produced in association with the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences at Aberystwyth University, is focused on the application of Earth Observation technology to capture the condition and dynamics of the Welsh landscape. It features digital displays that showcase the use of Earth Observation data in understanding and predicting the changes occurring to our land and ocean and revealing the natural dynamics of our planet. 

The Earthtrack mobile app (for Android devices) was also launched. This enables researchers and members of the public to take part in the collection of ground measurements that directly support Earth Observations in Wales. To find out more, click here or visit: https://www.cat.org.uk/eye-in-the-sky/

The exhibition will open to the general public in July 2019.
