FOSS4G-CEE & Geoinformatics 2012 conference had started on 20th of May in Prague, Czech Republic.

Within the FOSS4G-CEE & Geoinformatics 2012 conference program TERRASIGNA (former ASRC) had made a presentation on "Interactive METEOSAT: Educational Platform for Meteorological Applications Entirely Developed with FLOSS Software". Interactive METEOSAT (IM) is part of the EDUSPACE program, supported by the European Space Agency (ESA), aiming to provide secondary school students and teachers a learning and teaching tool for meteorological applications of Remote Sensing data (in particular, METEOSAT images).

Within the same Geoinformatics session of the FOSS4G-CEE & Geoinformatics 2012 conference, TERRASIGNA's expert had introduced LEOWorks to the audience: "Learning Earth Observation Image Processing with LEOWorks". LEOWorks is an educational software allowing de users to display, inspect and process Earth observation satellite images. It represents the main tool for demonstrating Earth Observation techniques within the European Earth Observation Web Site for Secondary Schools – EDUSPACE, belonging to the European Space Agency (ESA).

The two software applications are developed by the TERRASIGNA team, within projects supported by the European Space Agency and they were successfully used at national as well as at European level. In Romania, they were part of the training program of the Geospace project, co-financed through the European Social Fund (ESF), Operational Sector Operational Program for Human Resources 2007 – 2013.
