The European Space Agency (ESA), in coordination with the European Commission, is launching a special edition of the Custom Script Contest, focused on the support of space assets during the COVID-19 crisis.

Please submit your ideas on how satellite data could help monitor and mitigate the Covid-19 situation for the upcoming months in three focus categories: 

  1. economic operators’ activity (e.g. factories, supermarkets, transport networks, oil refineries, commercial ports),
  2. human activity distribution (e.g. parked car distributions over urban areas, social distancing estimations),
  3. agriculture activity (e.g. unattended fields and crops, disruptions due to supply chain issues, things that may contribute to mitigation of problems appearing in 6 months from now).

NOTE: Winners are selected weekly and then an overall winner at the end of May. 
This initial focus does not prevent participants from elaborating other type of value-added information in relation with this challenge.
The focus geographical area is European Union, EEA, ESA member states and cooperating states.
