The European project MYGEOSS awards an innovative idea of creating the MYGEOSS Feedback app submitted by 52North and S&T Corp to the First Call for Innovative Apps. This smart App is part of the outreach results of GeoViQua, a European project lead by CREAF during 2012 to 2014.
This week saw the first meeting of the ConnectinGEO project, a new European Horizon2020 project coordinated by CREAF that has the objective of coordinating and promoting the use of Earth observation data in Europe. Earth observation data are used for determining the health of the planet from space, using remote sensing technology such as sensors and cameras on planes, satellites, and other airships
This leaflet presents the final achievements of the GeoViQua (QUAlity aware VIsualisation for the Global Earth Observation system of systems) project described in terms of two demonstration scenarios. The scenario 1 is related to agriculture flooding practices control, and the scenario 2 talks about the Global Carbon Atlas.
CREAF has presented the final report of the European project GeoViQua, a project that will transform the global platform GEOSS in order to let users improve environmental data that provide organizations like NASA or FAO. Now users can also check the quality of environmental data. A specialized search engine and a color-coded label will help people to choose the most reliable data from all available..
More than 175 experts in earth observation from all over the world have gathered at the VII Geo European Projects Workshop, organized by the European Commission and the CREAF, celebrated on the 15th and 16th of April at the “Casa de la Convalascència” of the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
