The call is focused on the development of innovative applications (mobile or web-based) of European relevance using openly available or crowd-generated data in different domains. The pool of open data for use includes, but is not limited to, the Data Collection of Open Resources for Everyone (GEOSS Data-CORE, see below) made available by the Group on Earth observation (GEO) through the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), as well as open data from EU-funded projects.
--------------- About the GEOSS Data CORE
"The GEOSS Data Collection of Open Resources for Everyone (GEOSS Data-CORE) is a distributed pool of documented datasets with full and open unrestricted access at no more than the cost of reproduction and distribution" where:
"full access" means that all the data in the GEOSS Data-CORE can be accessed, used and redistributed;
"open access"means that data providers may charge at most the cost of reproduction and distribution of the data, although it is expected that in most cases the data in the GEOSS Data-CORE will be made available at no cost;
"unrestricted access" means that no restrictions are placed on the access to, or use and redistribution of the data in the GEOSS Data-CORE. It should be noted that the following two conditions may be placed on data registered in the GEOSS Data-CORE by data providers (i) attribution and (ii) user registration. These are not considered to represent restrictions on the access to, or use and redistribution of the data.
There are more than 5 million data resources in the GEOSS Data-CORE. They are accessible from the GeoWebPortal: http://www.geoportal.org (from the Home page, expand the Data Access Conditions and choose Data CORE).
