Access to, and analysis of, space-enabled data

...including ‘Big Data’, the ability to "combine vast sets of data in new ways to create new linkages, patterns and ultimately new knowledge […to] address the major challenges facing society including food security, climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss." (UK National Space Policy, 2015)
