Copernicus App Lab Project won the CKIM Demonstration Award 2018

The project “From Copernicus Big Data to Big Information and Big Knowledge” demo from the Horizon 2020 Copernicus App Lab project won this year’s CKIM 2018 demonstration award.

The demo project takes big data from the Copernicus land service and makes it available on the Web as linked geospatial data, interlinking it with other useful public data to aid the development of applications by developers that might not be Earth observation (EO) experts. The demo targets a scenario where the “greenness” of Paris is studies.

Since the data collected by Copernicus is made available freely following an open access policy, information extracted from Copernicus data is disseminated to users through the Copernicus services. This service addresses 6 thematic areas: Land, marine, atmosphere, climate, emergency and security.

The 27th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) took place on October 22-26, 2018 at Lingotto, Turin, Italy. The CKIM demo theme for 2018 was “From Big Data and Big Information to Big Knowledge” and provided an opportunity for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to interact while exploring the latest techniques for managing information and knowledge. CKIM sought demonstrations that showcased exciting new technologies and early prototypes, as well as case studies from more mature systems with innovative features and functionalities.
