Beyond just simplifyng access to existing EVs, Geoessential will transforms these exixting EVs into derived products for which users have identified a specific need. It will olso provide an interactive visualization capability that allows the user to explore the data, the EVS and the derived indicators, for example by displaying trends and maps, and thus facilitates understanding of the data significance, in particular for monitoring the progress towards SDGs.
Contribution to GEO-GEOSS:
to contribute implementing the EO knowledge base
to build on the ENEON commons for a better access to in-situ data
to contribute advancing the definition and implementation of EVs across GEOSS and Copernicus SBAs to monitor the SDGs
to advance the present GEOSS Common Infrastructure by adding important capabilities to manage and utilize workflows and third-party modelling and semantics resources/services


Overarching Objectives:
Adderess identified gaps and enhance the existing knowledge Base Infrastructure on Essential Variables (EVs)
Improve the availibility of EVs services from GEOSS and Copernicus platforms
Assess tje potential of synergies between ground and satellite observartion
Develop specific data workflows and build the GEOessential Hub with a dashboard from EVs to SDGs
