A cloud-based contribution to Earth Observation
Europe’s contribution to the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) will receive a big boost from the e-shape project. It is the largest coordinated effort to highlight operational services in the field of Earth observation research in Europe. The project aims to improve user uptake of Earth Observation data in the region. It will develop operational EO services and demonstrate the benefits of the EO pilots at national and international scale, across vertical markets (private and public), and amongst key user communities. Through the coordinated downstream exploitation of EO data and existing EO resources, they will run 27 cloud-based pilot applications under 7 thematic areas to address societal challenges, foster entrepreneurship, and support sustainable development.
