The CAMS Use Cases programme: a financial instrument available for Copernicus entrepreneurs

(© Copernicus website-Brussels, 29 September 2017). Last year, eight innovative Copernicus use cases were funded and supported technically by the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), in the frame of the 2017 Use Cases programme. CAMS recently launched a second call and is looking for six new ground –breaking applications. If you would like to develop an economically sustainable model on the basis of your innovative ideas, this is your chance!

Airbus to reshape Earth observation market with its Pleiades Neo constellation

The production of Airbus’ four new very high resolution satellites, which together will form the Pleiades Neo constellation, is well on schedule for launch in 2020.

One UN collaboration on access to and awareness raising of Earth observation for Sustainable Development Goals

VIENNA/GENEVA, 4 September (UN Information Service) – The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) have agreed to collaborate to further their common goals, particularly the use of space-based technology for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Copernicus assists in monitoring risks and planning for response to marine pollution

© Copernicus. In March 2017, following an armed attack on the oil port of Es Sider in Libya, the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC) activated the Mediterranean Operational Network for the Global Ocean Observing System (MONGOOS) services to simulate the worst-case scenario in the case of a potential oil spill incident. This simulation, based on data provided by the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service, in combination with other sources, including local information from REMPEC Focal Points in Libya, providing forecasts on currents and wind, showed that in only 24 hours about 44% of the oil would reach the coast. This information has proven vital for public authorities to prepare for any risk from accidental marine pollution.

Giovanni: The Bridge Between Data and Science

(By Zhong Liu and James Acker) Using satellite remote sensing data sets can be a daunting task. Giovanni, a Web-based tool, facilitates access, visualization, and exploration for many of NASA’s Earth science data sets.

Senior officials and executives from national geospatial information and statistical authorities within Member States and international geospatial experts from across the globe welcomed the alignment of GGIM’s Strategic Framework with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and discussed ways to support the alignment.

The GEO-CRADLE Networking Platform is now on line!

The new platform provides a wealth of information on key Earth Observation (EO) stakeholders from North Africa, Middle East and the Balkans. The users can navigate through the profiles of stakeholders and be informed on the existing networks, capacities, skills, etc. in the combined region. Whilst the platform is primarily targeting stakeholders from the region, organisations from other countries are invited to become part of the network. Interested stakeholders can easily complete their profile by providing their credentials and filling in a quick survey. The survey is split in five main sections: Contact Details, Activity Focus, Capacities, National Activities, Engagement in GEO-CRADLE.

Questions on Copernicus? Ask the Copernicus Support Office team!

Brussels, 21 July 2017. Many of our Copernicus Observer readers are already aware of the positive impact of the Copernicus programme on society and economy. Nevertheless, some questions remain up in the air when this impact is being discussed: how can citizens benefit from the plentiful archive and stream of free and open Earth Observation data and information? Where can we find this information? Is it fully free and available for anyone? How can it be integrated into a business to make it more successful or into a workflow to make it more efficient?
