With the fourth edition of the ESA Phi-Week (11 to 15 October 2021) we are proud to announce the first release of the openEO platform. The ESA Phi Week focuses on how to accelerate the future of Earth Observation (EO), presenting recent developments in EO Open Science and latest trends in EO markets.

The openEO platform provides a uniform processing interface towards multiple European data and processing infrastructures. It allows users to explore and process small or large amounts of EO data while taking away the burden of managing virtual machines, parallelization and file-based data access. The openEO API’s allow you to express your workflow in a simple manner, while the platform takes care of selecting the right strategy to compute your result.
This allows use cases from explorative research to large-scale production of EO-derived maps and information. This release integrates access to the Terrascope, EODC and the European Data Cube. Integration of CreoDIAS data and processing is scheduled for 2022.

Become an early adaptor and define the future direction of EO data processing

With this early adopter release we want to enable interested users to start adopting the platform, while giving feedback to help us identify how to further simplify your workflows. By gathering multiple EO data scientists and engineers, interested in user-friendly ways to access and process large amount of EO data, we can further evolve the openEO platform.

Are you interested to explore this new and exciting EO platform? Discover the sponsored early adopter packages and seize the opportunity to adopt openEO’s products and functionalities even before the platform is opened to the entire EO community.

The openEO platform is funded by ESA and established by EODC (lead), EGI, EURAC, GEO, Sinergise, VITO, and WWU Münster.
