Copernicus, European Union

Copernicus is the European Union's Earth Observation Programme, looking at our planet and its environment for the ultimate benefit of all European citizens. It offers information services based on satellite Earth Observation and in situ (non-space) data. The vast majority of data and information delivered by the Copernicus space infrastructure and the Copernicus services are made freely available and accessible to any citizen and any organisation around the world. Copernicus services transform satellite and in situ data into value-added information by processing and analysing the data. Datasets stretching back for years and decades are comparable and searchable. Maps are created from imagery, features and anomalies are identified and statistical information is extracted. These value-adding activities are streamlined through the six thematic streams of Copernicus services: atmosphere, marine, land, climate change, security, and emergency.
