The NPOC is a public service initiated by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education and Research. It is a joint venture shared by the Remote Sensing Laboratories (RSL) at the University of Zurich and the Federal Office of Topography (swisstopo).

Our mission at the university is to foster the use of Earth Observation by sharing our knowledge of technology and methods, offering free support and scientific consultation to Swiss potential users (authorities, research agencies, commercial providers and end-users). With my team, we make use of various satellite data and powerful tools and platforms such as Google Earth Engine to provide innovative solutions mainly using free and open data such as images coming from the Sentinel-fleet.
