GENESI-DEC (Ground European Network for Earth Science Interoperations – Digital Earth Community) will establish open data and services access, allowing Digital Earth Communities to seamlessly access, produce and share data, information, products and knowledge. This will create a multi-dimensional, multi-temporal, and multi-layer information facility of huge value in addressing global challenges such as biodiversity, climate change, pollution and economic development.
The project evolves and enlarges the platform developed by the predecessor GENESI-DR project by federating to and interoperating with existing infrastructures. GENESI-DEC will provide seamless and semantically enhanced discovery and access to scattered and heterogeneous data including satellite data, aircraft data, in-situ data, and model results. Furthermore, GENESI-DEC will provide access to computing resources and processing services for generating new products and extracting information starting from discovered data.
ESA FedEO Clearinghouse for Satellite Based EO Data
The FedEO product catalogue provides access to the product catalogues of many providers of satellite based EO data. Currently configured to access ESA and EUMETSAT product catalogues, access to these catalogues will be closely integrated with the clearinghouse catalogue in the near future, other data providers are in the process of being integrated.
