MEEO hosts the third EarthServer-2 project meeting (18-20 May 2016, Ferrara). Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, EarthServer-2 aims to offer improved access to Big Earth Data through established web service standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).
MEEO is one of the service partners that will make available up to 1 petabyte of Earth Observation (EO) products, to demonstrate the easiness of data exploration and deliver satellite data in its native context of a virtual globe via any standard internet browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE)..
