MYGEOSS is launching the third (and last) call for the development of innovative applications (mobile or web-based) using openly available or crowd-generated data in different domains addressing citizens’ needs. The pool of open data for use includes but is not limited to the Data Collection of Open Resources for Everyone (GEOSS Data-CORE ) made available by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) through the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), as well as open data from EU-funded projects.The FocusThe focus of this call will be on developing applications of European relevance that will provide users with information on the changing environment, e.g. change detection in climate, biodiversity, water bodies, coastal areas, built environment, green areas, forestry, agricultural land and crops, and atmospheric composition. Other areas of application will be considered providing they address broad environmental or social themes across geographic scales.The AwardsThe best applicants will be awarded contracts by the JRC for a maximum of € 13.500 to develop the applications further, and take them to the stage of first public release within 3 months of signing the contracts.
