Land Applications with Copernicus Data

During this demo session organized as part of the 4th Open Science Meeting 2019 (24 - 26 April 2019, Bern, Switzerland) you will learn how to use the RUS service, using free Virtual Machines with pre-installed open source software and we will demonstrate how to use Copernicus data for Land applications.


Understanding of the land system and monitoring its transformation implies identification of spatial patterns and evolution over time. The large volumes of free data acquired systematically by the Copernicus satellites (with continuity of observations ensured for the next decades) offer an invaluable source of information, however technical and knowledge barriers can prevent their exploitation.

Cost & Participation

Attendance to the training session is free of charge. However, the application is open only to participants registered to the 4th Open Science Meeting 2019.

Audience and selection

Seats will be available on a first-come first-served basis.

Training time

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM CEST


The Open Science Meeting 2019 will take place in the main building and the UniS building of the University of Bern, Switzerland. These buildings are located at the Grosse Schanze. A 5 min walk from the main station and good bus connections make the venue easy to reach.
