PODCAST: Hans van ‘t Woud on How to create an Atlas for Planet Mars

Today we are at SBIC in Noordwijk in the Netherlands for our business of collaboration podcast. We are interviewing Hans van ‘t Woud, founding director of BlackShore.

BlackShore is the ‘parent’ of his award winning brainchild “Cerberus”. Cerberus is a crowdsourcing platform in which satellite imagery is turned into maps to better understand disasters or humanitarian threats for example.
