Copernicus

Long name: 
Copernicus
Description: 
Copernicus, previously known as GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security), is the European Programme for the establishment of a European system for monitoring the Earth. Copernicus consists of a complex set of systems which collect data from multiple sources: earth observation satellites and in situ sensors. It processes these data and provides users with reliable and up-to-date information through a set of services related to environmental and security issues. The services address six thematic areas: land, marine, atmosphere, climate change, emergency management and security. The marine service uses OSI SAF products as inputs.
