European Commission Launches ‘Europe’s Eyes on The Earth’ Roadshow
27 May, 2019

Copernicus is Europe’s system for monitoring the Earth and collects data from several satellites and sensors on the ground stations, in the air, and at sea. Data is collected for a wide range of applications, including environment protection, urban management, regional and local planning, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, health, transport, climate change, sustainable development, civil protection, and tourism.

Launched over 20 years ago, the programme is now the largest of its kind in the world. Seven satellites are currently in orbit producing more than 12 terabytes per day of high-resolution information for six key themes: land, marine, atmosphere, climate change, emergency management, and security.
