Eyes on Earth Roadshow - part 1

An EASME and DG GROW initiative, the Copernicus ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow will foster the development of applications with space data and other geo-information systems; develop the technical and scientific skills needed to work in the space data sector; and encourage citizens’ interest in earth observation activities.

This will be done through a series of five highly interactive events in five different EU Member States from June 2019 to March 2020.

The events, which include an expo area with interactive tools, business presentations, interactive masterclasses dedicated to real business cases (e.g. how to deal with heat islands in cities), and network/matchmaking sessions, will provide a multitude of benefits to participants of all ages and all walks of life.
Participation in all Roadshow events is free of charge.


The ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow in Darmstadt demonstrated how the European Union’s Copernicus satellite programme helps us all better understand our planet; and creates jobs and business opportunities. The event, which included an expo area with interactive tools, business presentations, interactive masterclasses dedicated to real business cases (e.g. how to deal with heat islands in cities), and network/matchmaking sessions, provided a multitude of benefits to participants of all ages and all walks of life. 

CREODIAS delegation was on site during the two days and participated by having a booth at the event.

JupyterHub - available on CREODIAS

We are proud to present a new service supplementing CREODIAS computational environment. Renowned and widely popular Jupyter Notebooks are now available, seamlessly integrated with CREODIAS system!

CREODIAS Jupyter Notebook is the easiest and most accessible tool for prototyping and development of your ideas for Earth Observation data processing. We are giving you ready-to-go interactive programming environment, equipped with Julia, R and Python language kernels and wide array of extensions, so you can customize it to your needs. Additionally, languages are fitted with number of useful packages for EO processing. Not to restrict you, we also allow users to download and install libraries of their own choice.

Check our demonstration notebook – waiting for you in your environment - to see how quick and easy is to access the CREODIAS product repository. Once you get a grasp of it, try doing more, creating your own processes. All this is available with your CREODIAS credentials.

Panta Rhei - Denmark

The conference will primarly gather all Paying Agencies from the European Union, which are responsible for the funding of agriculture lands and subsidising farmers in regards to their crop. These Paying Agencies belong to the European Network for Rural Development (ENRD), that acts as a hub for connecting rural Europe and serves as a platform for the sharing of ideas and experiences on how Rural Development Programmes are working in practice.

The main stakeholders of the ENRD include National Rural Networks (NRNs), RDP Managing Authorities and Paying Agencies, Local Action Groups (LAGs); European stakeholder organisations; agricultural advisory services and other interested rural development stakeholders and organisations.

CREODIAS will attend the conference by having our CloudFerro delegation present. You can meet the CloudFerro team in the DIAS section of the conference, where a booth will be present to demonstrate the unique features of our DIAS. Also, we will be presenting our DIAS during the first day of the event.

Load Balancer as a Service on CREODIAS

Load Balancer is a service that listens for requests, and then forwards those requests on to servers within a pool. There are many reasons why you should take advantage of this functionality, but the most common situations are when you are trying to get a high-availability architecture, and when you need more performance than a single server can provide.

The load balancer occupies Openstack neutron network port and has an IP address assigned from a subnet. Load balancers can listen for requests on multiple ports. Each one of those ports is specified by a listener. A pool holds a list of members that serve content through the load balancer. Members are servers that serve traffic behind a load balancer. Each member is specified by the IP address and port that it uses to serve traffic. Members may go offline from time to time and health monitors divert traffic away from members that are not responding properly. Health monitors are associated with pools.

LBaaS is available now for all CREODIAS users. For more information, we invite you to check our the user documentation website - https://creodias.eu/load-balancer-as-a-service

Living Planet Symposium

Attracting thousands of scientists and data users, ESA’s Living Planet Symposia are amongst the biggest Earth observation conferences in the world. For decades now Earth observation has played a fundamental role in advancing our understanding of how our planet works and how it is being affected by climate change. While the need to continue to advance our knowledge and monitor global change remains paramount, Earth observation has entered a new era where it is playing a key role in a myriad of everyday applications to improve daily lives and is also becoming increasingly relevant for the competitive business sector.

We took part in this 5-day event, hosting a booth for interested parties to come along and learn about our features. We would like to thank all those that came by and spoke with us about Earth Observation data, cloud computing and the opportunities for business with CREODIAS. We will be releasing a summary video soon, so make sure you stay up-to-date with our social media accounts.
