Training

Invite only

This training session provides an introduction to geospatial data. It provides examples to demonstrate the
usefulness of geospatial data. It is an important feature of data.europa.eu to facilitate the discovery and access to open geospatial data sources.


Topics covered in the training:

  • What geospatial data (e.g., topics, thematic domains) is available via data.europa.eu?
  • Where does the geospatial data found on data.europa.eu come from?
  • How can geospatial data be found on data.europa.eu?
  • How can the geospatial data be accessed and used? (Formats of geospatial data and services, delivery
  • mechanisms)
  • How can a geospatial context be added to non-geospatial data and what is the benefit of this?

Learning objectives:

  • Strengthen the participants’ understanding of the value of geospatial data.
  • Understand how to find geoinformation on data.europa.eu.
  • Learn what kind of geoinformation (geodata, geoservices, geoinformation via APIs) can be found on
    data.europa.eu and how it can be used.

The recording of the session can be found under 'Videos'. The slide deck used during the session can found under 'Additional reading'.

Geospatial Trends 2021: Opportunities for data.europa.eu from Emerging Trends in the Geospatial Community

Estimated reading time:
1h
Language:
English
As part of the data.europa.eu mission to support European countries in increasing their open data maturity and promoting re-use, the adoption of new trends for publishing geospatial data will be monitored and their relevance for data.europa.eu will be explored on a yearly basis. This report identifies opportunities from emerging trends in the geospatial community and explores how data.europa.eu can support and benefit from the new ways in which geospatial datasets are offered in 2021.

Copernicus data for the open data community

Estimated reading time:
1.5h
Language:
English
This report aims to help open data enthusiasts exploit the potential of Copernicus data for earth observation applications by addressing three questions: "What can I do with Copernicus data?", "How can I access the data?", and "What tools do I need for using the data?".
