Combining powerful processing tools and virtual environments with continuously updated data from the four Copernicus environmental Services and the Copernicus Sentinel satellites, WEkEO is the perfect tool to help you make the most out of Copernicus space data as well as data derived from in situ technology and models.
The next phase of the Copernicus programme is well underway. As we look to the future of the Copernicus programme, WEkEO will continue to play an important role in providing an easy-to-use, yet powerful, data access platform specialised in Copernicus environmental data straight from the source.
Thanks to its powerful processing tools, virtual environments and large database of Copernicus Earth Observation data, the WEkEO platform is powering innovation competitions and supporting education and training.
As the Copernicus Data and Information Access Service (DIAS) specialised in providing environmental data combined with powerful processing tools, WEkEO has the potential to support international efforts to address climate change.
Mercator Ocean International is increasingly mobilised on the development of capacity-building actions. Included in the UN Sustainable Development Goal 17 “Partnerships for the Goals”, the process of capacity-building implies the global strengthening of skills and resources needed to achieve the SDGs, through the increase and improvement of technology, data collection and monitoring. For instance, for the SDG14 “Life Below Water”, Mercator Ocean International is developing learning activities, offering its scientific and technical expertise and providing data and computing resources through various projects thanks to WEkEO
The second phase of Copernicus from 2021 to 2027 (often referred to as Copernicus 2) has kicked off.
Are you looking to develop an application or carry out research using marine, climate, atmospheric or land environmental data? Take your project to the next level with JupyterLab, which is freely available in all WEkEO plans.
EUMETSAT, ECMWF, Mercator Ocean International and the EEA have jointly developed a new massive open online course (MOOC) on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Earth monitoring.
The WEkEO Earth Observation cloud platform is used by a variety of organisations for different purposes from scientific research and environmental monitoring, to supporting the development of fact-based policy making and commercial applications of Earth Observation data. The WEkEO team spoke to Pascal Derycke from Marine Analyst to discuss how they have used the WEkEO platform to develop and operate this innovative marine data platform which started as a personal project, a sort-of “citizens’ initiative”, between Pascal and his friend and colleague, Laurent Dubroca.
The WEkEO platform provides access to the new Copernicus High Resolution Vegetation Phenology and Productivity (HR-VPP) service, which enables a better monitoring of vegetation dynamics and allow the assessment of climatic as well as anthropogenic impacts on ecosystems.
The WEkEO platform is used by a variety of organisations for different purposes from scientific research and environmental monitoring, to supporting the development of fact-based policy making and commercial applications of Earth Observation data. The WEkEO team spoke to Dr. Vardis Tsontos from NASA JPL, the driving force behind the COVERAGE project, to discuss how they use the WEkEO platform to access Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service data and promote the usage of Marine data.
The WEkEO platform is used by a variety of organisations for different purposes from scientific research and environmental monitoring, to supporting the development of fact-based policy making and commercial applications of Earth Observation data. The WEkEO team spoke to Joel Dorandeu from Magellium to discuss how they have used the WEkEO platform to develop and operate the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS)’s High-Resolution Snow and Ice Monitoring service on behalf of the European Environment Agency (EEA), which implements the pan-European and local component of the CLMS.
The WEkEO platform is used by a variety of organisations for different purposes from scientific research, to supporting the development of fact-based policy making and commercial applications of Earth Observation data. The WEkEO team spoke to Aytor Naranjo from Lobelia Earth and Bas Mijling from the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) to discuss how they have used the WEkEO platform over the past 18 months in their innovative air quality monitoring and forecasting application, Lobelia Air.
Master the use of WEkEO and learn about business opportunities in our upcoming series of webinars running from 10 June until the end of September 2021.
As of 2020, the European Environment Agency (EEA), which implements the local and Pan-European components of the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS), started using WEkEO as an implementation environment, and is preparing to join WEkEO as a partner.
We are pleased to announce the launch of our User Experience survey, aimed at understanding how users interact with the WEkEO platform in order to improve our cloud computing platform and processing tools, leading to a more comprehensive and enjoyable user experience.
We are pleased to announce that the WEkEO V1 version will be available June 17th 2020 and offers a range of improvements and new functionalities.
The latest instalment of the Copernicus ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow will be organised as a fully digital/online event on 2-3 June.
WEkEO DIAS cloud computing services, along with its extensive portfolio of Earth observation data, will be offered free of charge for all projects fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
The European Space Week (EUSW) will take place in Helsinki (Finland) on 3-5 December.
Work with an ocean of data without getting your feet wet!
WEkEO has been developed jointly by EUMETSAT (leading cloud infrastructure and system engineering support), ECMWF (leading data access and tools) and Mercator Ocean International (leading user support, web presence and marketing).
The EGU (European Geosciences Union) General Assembly 2019, taking place in Vienna (Austria) on 7–12 April 2019, will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences.
The WEkEO Copernicus DIAS Service strives to continually deliver a user-driven service including free-of-charge products and meet user needs.
