The European Earth observation programme, Copernicus, formerly known as GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) will produce a very high amount of information in the coming years by observing the Earth via satellites.
The information obtained from this programme in and of itself does not represent any type of knowledge and, therefore, the need to convert this large quantity of information into knowledge with relevant social and economic value is urgent.
There is immense potential for the application of this type of data: i) in planning; ii) in monitoring; and iii) the management of all economic production activities;
This action aims to increase technological competencies and knowledge based on satellite images in strategic sectors like vines, olive trees, grains, fruit, vegetables, forestry, etc.
