  • The Irish Earth Observation Symposium 2017 (IEOS2017) and the Copernicus Training and Information Session take place on Thursday, 2 and Friday, 3 November respectively. 

    These events aim to strengthen the links between researchers, technologists, service providers and end-users for more effective exploitation of EO data and information services across Ireland. Support is being provided by the Geomatics Surveying Professional Group of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI) and the Irish Organisation for Geographic Information (IRLOGI).

    Irish Earth Observation Symposium 2017 (IEOS2017)                                                      The IEOS 2017 provides an opportunity for all those involved in the remote sensing sector to network and present their work to the EO community in either oral or poster format. This event, the 11th in the series, is a full day of talks and demonstrations, hosted by the National Centre for Geocomputation, Maynooth University on Thursday, 2 November 2017. Further information on the IEOS agenda, industry exhibitions and abstract submission guidelines are available at www.ieos2017.com

    Copernicus Training and Information Session                                                                      This session will be held on Friday, 3 November 2017 at Maynooth University and is the 12th in a series of national Copernicus events. The European Commission is organising the Sessions at the request of, and in collaboration with Member States. The event aims to promote awareness of the many uses of Copernicus data and information, while providing the opportunity for hands on demonstrations and basic training regarding:

    - The data and information available

    - Its potential uses and applications, both generally and amongst specific categories of users (Public Authorities , Entrepreneurs, etc.) or business sectors (Copernicus for Emergency Management Service, Land Monitoring, Marine Monitoring, Urban Planning etc.) and

    - The tools available to access the data and information.

    The training session targets both Copernicus “intermediate” end users (technical) and end user communities (non-technical).
