Observing the Earth from space serves different purposes that range from meteorology, management of natural resources, and marine applications, to climate, energy, and security services. In Europe, one of the main programmes is COPERNICUS, which is a contribution to the Global Earth Observation System of Systems.
In combination with other systems such as the EUMETSAT Polar System (EPS) or commercial satellites, COPERNICUS offers a wide range of services and can enable a tremendous number of commercially viable downstream applications.
The session will address both scientific and commercial applications of Earth Observation data, showcase successful applications, and will increase participant awareness regarding current trends.
