Abstract

In the context of smart city, there is the need of cheap approaches to get environmental and contextual data. IoT (Internet of Things) devices and sensors may be located in specific points of interest, while their costs is high for the installation, usage/licensing and maintenance. The satellite data can be a viable solution to have more data at the cheaper costs, some of them are open data, while in other cases the satellite data have a cost. In this paper, the exploitation of satellite data in the context of Smart City is analyzed and some examples are provided. The satellite data of the European Union's Earth observation program Copernicus can be used to calibrate the values of large sensors network data, and for new applications in which similar data cannot be recovered from the field. A demonstrative Dashboard has been provided to allow the users to perform a comparison of data coming from satellite with respect to those obtained from IOT Devices. This research has been developed in the context of PC4City project (Civil Protection for the City) of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze.
