1 st GEOSS Portal User Demo – Virtual Workshop (26th January 2017)

Accessing information from the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) has never been easier. The enhanced GEOSS Portal, the first time unveiled at GEO’s Thirteenth Plenary, is becoming more and more user-centric, better responding to their actual needs and continuously being updated to evolving requirements.

The European Space Agency (ESA), in close collaboration with Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR- IIA) who is responsible for the implementation and operations of the GEOSS Discovery and Access Broker, has built an intuitive graphical user interface to discover, access and use all of the ever-growing numbers of GEO-resources from a variety of providers all around the world.

Already now, users can now perform temporal, thematic and geographic searches, allowing them to retrieve quickly and accurately the resources they are looking for. Keywords can be used to perform general searches and progressive filtering is applied to support users in refining their searches and narrowing down their search results. A synthetic summary is presented of key metadata fields. Icon buttons help the user quickly assess the results’ relevance.
