Data flow from space to earth: application and interoperability

A huge amount of data is already provided by satellites watching to the Earth and the new services that are going to be implemented, including high accuracy and high reliability positioning and navigation systems, are offering new opportunities.

On the other hand, European Union is challenged to reach a real interoperability of geographical information data, through the implementation of the INSPIRE directive and the GIS4EU project could be considered an example of this. However, the use of the data provided by satellites (both in GMES and in Galileo and EGNOS) in conjunction with geographical and environmental data collected from the ground has not fully discussed and deepened in all its implications.

This conference would like to start a proper consideration of these issues,

The deadline for submission of full papers for oral presentation and publication is on January 15, 2011
