This project will target French, German and Swiss local and regional authorities to raise their awareness of the uses of Copernicus satellite data to improve territorial management at local, regional and cross border levels. Moreover, local administrators will be trained on the use of Copernicus satellite data and will be exposed to existing operational satellite-based services. A spatial indicator for urban planning based on Copernicus satellite data will also be co-designed by cross-border regions.
The project has a duration of 20 months and is carried out with funding from the Caroline Herschel Framework Partnership Agreement between the European Commission and Copernicus Participating States. The initiative is overseen by CNES in the frame of the “Connect-by-CNES” programme.
