Gisat projects are presented in two European publications

FLOREO and UrbanAtlas+ projects have been selected to demonstrate successful regional GMES applications.

NEREUS and ESA launched their joint publication “The Growing Use of GMES across Europe’s Regions” on 10 October 2012. It collects 67 case studies of 17 European countries showing how GMES applications are used across Europe’s regions.

Operational snow cover mapping service is run by Gisat to support hydrological flood forecasting provided by the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute. This service has been developed within the FLOREO project which was implemented by Gisat in cooperation with SPRINX and Faculty of Science of Charles University in Prague within the ESA PECS programme.

“Window on GMES” is another publication discovering what GMES can do for European regions and cities. The publication has been published by GMES4Regions, joint activity of DORIS_Net and GRAAL FP7 funded projects.

UrbanAtlas+ project has been selected among 12 successful GMES applications to be featured in the publication. UrbanAtlas+ was focused to explore and demonstrate the potential of ongoing UrbanAtlas service production for spatial planning applications, especially:

  • urban growth dynamics monitoring and assessment providing insight into the land consumption & formation processes involved,
  • socio-economic data integration supporting integration of Urban Atlas data with conventional statistics in general, testing the standard Urban Audit set of indicators in particular.
