The brand new Copernicus App Lab data access platform, merging the scientific Earth observation (EO) community and mobile developers, is now open for registration. All smart entries automatically become part of an exclusive beta-community and receive free travel to the European Space Agency (ESA) Space App Camp in Frascati, Italy.
The Copernicus App Lab provides a proof-of-concept including data from the Copernicus Land -, Marine Environment -, and Atmosphere Monitoring Services as linked open data to promote the inclusion of EO data into value-added services and/or applications. Hereby, app developers bridge the digital divide between the established, science-driven EO community and the innovative, entrepreneurial world.
In order to participate in this collective endeavor making the world a safer and economically stronger place, app developers are now called to register until 24 July 2017 at www.app-lab.eu/.
“Copernicus will deliver an unprecedented volume of available data, provide new operational services, and foster new business opportunities and job creation.” explains Elzbieta Bienkowska, European Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs.
