Earth Observation Data Visualisation Workshop Series

Imagery is a powerful way to convey an impactful message. With the increased availability of satellite data and petabytes of Copernicus Sentinel open data, data visualisation and data journalism have significantly developed in recent years. Earth observation has emerged as a new, easily available way to illustrate environmental and climate change-related challenges and communicate complex information to a broad audience.

With a wealth of satellite data and geospatial products available on a full, free and open basis, the European Union, with Copernicus, is providing journalists and all those interested in data visualisation with a vast amount of raw material as well as processed information and model outputs.
Also, the tools to access and process this data for storytelling are increasingly easy to use and have made considerable progress in recent years.

With this in mind, EUMETSAT is hosting a series of short online workshops over a six-week period on Earth observation and Copernicus data visualisation:

– 16 May: Introduction to EO data visualisation
– 23 May: Air quality and wildfires
– 30 May: Oceans and sea ice
– 6 June: Climate and weather
– 13 June: Climate extremes
– 20 June: How to access and process Copernicus and EUMETSAT data
