Building Earth Observation applications with NextGEOSS

NextGEOSS provides a suite of infrastructure tools and services for helping the Earth Observation (EO) community with building enterprise-class applications, opening up EO data and their value-added products to downstream communities.

The one day workshop will:

  • Show users what NextGEOSS offers as a platform
  • Explore existing examples of community use of NextGEOSS
  • Provide hands-on experience with NextGEOSS tools and services


The one-day face-to-face training will enable first-hand discussions with the technical team developing and maintaining the platform, and networking with the existing and new user community.  If you would like to know more about using NextGEOSS to discover, access and process EO data, this free workshop is for you.To shape the day to the needs of users, we are looking for expressions of interest to prioritise training topics on the infrastructure services of NextGEOSS.

Please email the IEA’s Training & Development Manager Vicky Lucas if you are interested in attending the day and to indicate one or two priority subjects shown below:

  1. Data discovery using the CKAN service
  2. Integration of your data processing algorithm onto the NextGEOSS Cloud platform
  3. Configuration of community portals using geospatial web services
  4. Ingestion of data products into CKAN data catalogues
  5. Integration of user feedback applied to data resources (quality, fit for purpose, …)
  6. Integration of the NextGEOSS user management service
  7. Integration of the NextGEOSS analytics service
  8. Integration of standard Web Processing Service clients

NextGEOSS has a special focus on encouraging and stimulating data exploitation by businesses with a strong emphasis on engaging the communities of providers and users, and bridging the space in between. Capacity building is at its heart and the project is identifying training needs to encourage wider user-engagement with EO data and its commercial potential. The project is funded by the EU H2020 programme.
