To have a clear understanding of our climate it is of crucial importance to have up to date and comprehensive environmental information available. Copernicus is the European system for monitoring the Earth and is coordinated and managed by the European Commission. Data are collected by multiple sources: earth observation satellites and in situ sensors such as ground stations, airborne sensors, and sea-borne sensors. These data, made also available as open data, provide users with reliable and up-to-date information through a set of services related to environmental and security issues.
To raise awareness about the Copernicus Programme and to make sure people have a basic skill set to work with the data, the European Commission is organising training sessions throughout Europe. The next two of these sessions will take place in Portugal and Malta in the upcoming months. During these sessions, participants will be introduced to:
- data available via the programme;
- available tools to access this information;
- potential applications and uses of the data and information.
Do you want to get to know more about the potential of the Open Data made available via Copernicus and see how it can be used? Take a look at the upcoming sessions by Copernicus and register for the one closest to you.
