Members of this community will be responsible for promoting the benefits of the Copernicus Earth Observation Programme, informing about its advantages and opportunities, expanding the user community, developing new applications, and promoting the potential of using satellite data.
As the official representative of Copernicus Relay, Polish companies responsible for the development of the EO Cloud platform, combining a powerful repository of up-to-date satellite data with cloud computing, will coordinate and develop initiatives promoting the Copernicus Programme as a source of public and reliable data and information that can help develop business and stimulate economic growth in the European Union.
An ambitious programme of Earth observation
Copernicus is a European Union program designed to develop European information services based on satellite Earth observations and in situ data collection by ground stations, and airborne and marine sensors. The programme is coordinated and managed by the European Commission and the development of observation infrastructures is under the umbrella of the European Space Agency and the Member States.
The collected data help us understand how our planet and climate change, the role human actions play in these changes, and how they affect our daily lives. According to the programme’s creators, the prosperity and security of future generations is more than ever dependent on coordinated actions at international level and on conscious environmental policy. In order to take the right action, policy makers, businesses and citizens must have reliable and up-to-date information on the changes taking place on our planet and the progressive climate change.
The main users of Copernicus services are decision-makers and public authorities who need information to develop environmental legislation and policies or make key emergency decisions, in situations such as natural disasters or humanitarian crises.
Development impulse to Europe
Information provided by Copernicus can be used by end users for a wide range of applications in a variety of areas. These include: urban management, sustainable development and nature conservation, regional and local planning, agriculture, forestry and fisheries, health, civil protection, infrastructure, transport and mobility, and tourism.
According to the European Commission, data provided by European satellites can contribute to the development of innovative services and products dedicated to public institutions and businesses.
About EO Cloud
EO Cloud is a flexible tool that combines a powerful repository of up-to-date satellite data with a cloud of computing capabilities to find, process, and extend data stored in a repository. The platform enables entrepreneurs to create their own services based on the use of Earth observation data. It has a friendly interface and a flexible price list tailored to the needs of different users. EO Cloud resources are used by businesses, academics, universities, public institutions, and research institutes all over the world. The platform was created within a project implemented by an international consortium of companies: Creotech Instruments S.A, CloudFerro Sp. z o.o. and Brockmann Consult at the request of the European Space Agency.
