The European satellite program “Copernicus” offers new chances for innovative ideas and products. It provides information based on a new combination of satellite data, terrestrial observation systems and databases. This enables to react more efficiently to new challenges for example climate change, to optimize processes in application industries of GeoIT and to open up emerging markets. Copernicus data are provided for free according to the open data concept of the EU and still the potential of Copernicus isn’t tapped to the fullest.
The cooperation network “CopServ” wants to change this and to initiate technological developments and to realize marketing activities as well as to use synergy effects inside the network for future-oriented solutions and products.
At the informative meeting experts from the network CopServ as well as specialists from various client industries show which solutions are worked out so far, which requirements result from industry-specific processes and which trends and developments arise around the topic Copernicus.
Following topics are on the agenda:
Copernicus – access points: access platforms and technologies for free usage
ICT: CloudComputing, big data, data mining, senor networks and senor data fusion, specific data analysis
Industry applications: practical examples from water economy, energy economy, mining/post-mining, agriculture, nature conservation and environment protection and public administration
