Earth Observation (EO) is gaining ever more attention, though academic studies on technical and legal aspects of data acquisition remain few and far between. It is clear that the rapid increase in the number and diversity of data gathering methods supported by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles will gain more attention with time.

With this in mind, the editors of this book, scholars at the Faculty of Law and Administration at the University of Silesia in Katowice, came up with the idea of gathering specialists from Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Gdansk University of Technology, University of Canberra, Shaqra University in Saudi Arabia, Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, Technical University of Dortmund, University of Warmia and Mazury as well as EuroDefense (Germany) and StratByrd Consulting to discuss the rules of creating EO databases supported by new technology tools.

It is believed that a common editorial scheme will contribute to a better understanding of the actions taken on the geo-information market, and will become a platform for exchanging ideas and experiences of many representatives of universities, public administration and business. This is the fourth book published in the Geo&IP Series devoted to various aspects of GI and IP law.


The scientific nature of the dissertation is strongly embedded in the practical aspects of earth observation in both legal and technical terms, which addresses the very important needs related to the use of new technologies. Combining these two aspects in one single publication was a serious issue for the editors and, in my opinion, the editors of this book actually met this challenge by creating a coherent publication.
