Processing on demand
Process any data on the fly in order to produce geoinformation that is useful to you.
We help solve your daily challenges
From raw satellite imagery or data collections to value-added information: we offer you a privileged access to a large selection of information and tools that can help you make informed decisions and develop new services.
Start a guided tour of the application domains we support
In an increasingly complex economic and environmental context, the agricultural sector has to produce crops in an ever more effective and sustainable way, without compromising on biodiversity.
In this perspective, our data and services are effective tools to:
Our data and in particular the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) provide useful information on the physical state, variability and dynamics of the ocean and marine ecosystems.
Transport represents an important part of the World’s economy. Be it the carriage of goods or passenger travel, it’s a matter of attention for industries, government and local authorities.
The quality of the Environment, both natural and man-made, has a direct impact on tourism.
The status and any changes in the environment have a direct impact on our health. In extreme cases, strong variations in the environment can affect life expectancy or at least play a role when it comes to an increase in (or spreading of) diseases / epidemics.
Insurance & Disaster Management
The impact of natural disasters such as flooding, forest fires, storms and earthquakes can be reduced through effective hazard management and mitigation. It is necessary to develop prediction models, monitor facilities and draft regulations & contingency plans.
The usability of Earth observation imagery to detect, identify and track human activities and objects is a well-known application for border security and the defence domain at large.
Energy & Natural Resources
Whether coming from wind, sun, hydrology or biomass - renewable energy will significantly grow in the next decades.
Climate Change & Environment
Knowledge about the state of the environment, and climate change in particular, is essential in order to establish and enforce mitigation policies as well as to react in disaster situations.
In the context of an increasing urban pressure, with more than a quarter of the Europe’s land area covered by built-up areas, the management of city expansion is a key component of any sustainable development policy.
news & events
This is it ! The first batch of Copernicus Hackathons have been selected by the European Commission. Developers around Europe will be meeting up to challenge themselves in using Earth Observation data.
The Copernicus Research and User Support (RUS) is a free-of-charge service funded by the European Commission.
Sea levels are key indicators of climate change - Copernicus satellite is expected to be launched in 2020
