About the contest
There are over two thousand satellites orbiting in space to collect images and other information of the Earth and space. This is a huge amount of data to help public services, private companies and other institutions to provide variety of applications and solutions improving quality of our life. Copernicus is an important European Union's Earth Observation programme, coordinated and managed by the European Commission and implemented by the European Space Agency (ESA), aimed at providing services delivering in near-real-time data to help us better understand our planet and lead more sustainably economy.
CREODIAS is one of five DIAS (Data and Information Access Services) platforms, built and operated by CloudFerro on behalf of ESA under the Copernicus Programme. It provides easy and open access to more than 18 petabytes of satellite data, together with public cloud computing environment for processing Earth Observation products.
In September, we invited CREODIAS users to participate in our contest for the most beautiful images of Earth obtained on CREODIAS by means of using its Finder tool.
For less advanced participants, we prepared a webcast Introduction to CREODIAS to learn more about the platform and a short tutorial How to download EO data using EO Finder at CREODIAS and visualise it in QGIS.
The winning images were selected in public voting and by a jury consisting of the representatives of the European Commission, ESA and CloudFerro. All the 13 images will compose CloudFerro calendar for 2021 that will be distributed to institutions and organizations of the EO industry.
