Opening of the national forum for remote sensing and copernicus – welcoming speech from four ministries
The welcoming speeches have been held by representatives of four federal ministries. The fact that an event gets the concurrent support of four ministries shows its uniqueness and thereby also the importance of remote sensing and Copernicus. Sensing and Copernicus are borne by the federal ministries of transport, interior, environment and agriculture and all welcoming speeches emphasized the significance and meaning of satellite data.
Mister Klaus Vitt, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community, requests administrations and authorities to make sustainable and modern regulations which support the open data process and to follow the example of the federal government and the Copernicus strategy. The current heterogeneous license and usage models of the states are neither up to date nor are they coping with the manifold usages.
