Earth Observation data, cloud services and analytics tools for climate and environment protection

  • Diego Scardaci (


The session will present various initiatives and EU projects that are focusing on the provisioning of Earth Observation data in different sectors:
- Research: the OpenEO project (a Federated Open Earth Observation Platform - will demonstrate how ESA is investing on he realization of a federated open infrastructure (open source software, data, compute platform) building upon existing EO processing platforms.
The sesssion will also feature a presentation of the recently approved project C-SCALE (Copernicus - eoSC AnaLytics Engine). The project aims to federate European EO infrastructure services, such as the Copernicus DIAS and others. The federation shall capitalise on the EOSC capacity and capabilities to support Copernicus research and operations with large and easily accessible European computing environments. That would allow the rapid scaling and sharing of EO data among a large community of users by increasing the service offering of the EOSC Portal. The project will deliver a blueprint, setting up an interaction model between service providers to facilitate interoperability between commercial (e.g. DIAS-es) and public cloud infrastructures.
- Policy making: the NextGEOSS project has created a data hub that demonstrates the potential of new advances in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to help develop and deploy new services requiring a wide variety of data sources and creating a solid foundation for capacity building through GEOSS community platforms.

The session will conclude with a panel focusing on the discussion on how Destination Earth can take advantage of EGI and other EOSC capabilities, leveraging the national capacity they federate.
