’Multimedie for VirtuelGalathea3’ was a project funded partly by Tips- og Lottopuljen at Danish Ministry of Education. The main goal was to ensure films on Galathea 3 and demonstration of the use of satellite images in these activities. The major outcome of the project is an educational film ‘Galatheas Øje’ describing five themes in which satellite images are important: sea ice mapping and navigation; mapping algae in oceans; weather forecasting; environmental monitoring e.g. sea turtles; and combining field studies at Galapagos with Earth Observation data. A collaboration between the project Satellite Eye for Galathea 3 and European Space Agency ESA Eduspace was made. The educational film is an appetizer for learning more at the e-based system www.virtuelgalathea3.dk Furthermore, 50 short films were produced describing science themes and general themes from the Galathea 3 expedition. Each short film is around 2 minutes long. Finally, a film for Danish television on satellite images and Galathea 3 was produced, however with emphasis on spy-satellite technology. The production was shown 22nd April 2008.
