TERRASIGNA (former ASRC) was invited to participate in the conference The European Earth Monitoring Programme Copernicus: Its Benefits for the Citizens of Eastern Europe that took place in Bucharest from 21 May 2013 to 22 May 2013 at the Palace of the Parliament.
Considering the positive effects of the conference on the European Earth Monitoring Programme GMES held in 2012 in Bucharest – „GMES: New Opportunities for Eastern Europe”, the organisers had returned in 2013 to demonstrate the important benefits this flagship programme of the European Union can bring to its citizens, through the Copernicus services.
The agenda of the conference „The European Earth Monitoring Programme Copernicus: Its Benefits for the Citizens of Eastern Europe” covered topics such as the state of play of the space segment including the Sentinel satellites, of the services already, or to be rendered soon, fully operational and the plans for a future governance of the programme in the period 2014-2020. The conference addressed to users, service providers and decision makers, but intended to reach more public and private organizations interested in Earth observation in general and Copernicus in particular.
TERRASIGNA’s presentation in the conference refered to ESPOSS - a web based EO data access and processing application for the Black Sea developed in a project financed within the ESA Romanian Industry Incentive Scheme (2013-2015). The application incorporated geospatial data from various sources (satellite images, in-situ data, model outputs) and served as a working tool for the scientific community and the relevant decision makers.
