CARO - CEO (Center for Earth Observation) Austrian Relay Office
|Duration||1999 - 2002|
This project is to exploit impulses originating from the European Comission's project "Center for Earth Observation" (CEO) for applications in Austria. One component of activities requiredto achieve that is -Installation of a "CEO& Middleware Node"& (MWND) at Austrian Research Centers Seibersdorf ARC.
A MWND is a mirror-site, fully synchronised with the CEO's operational system "Information about Earth Observation" (INFEO). Thus, users in Austria (and in neighbouring countries) are offered the full amount of functions and data of INFEO under optimal network performance.
According to the project name "CARO - CEO& Austrian Relay Office", a number of additional activities is planned, mainly to be carried out at the project leading Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision ICG at TU& Graz: -Infromation and education of users on the possibility employing remote sensing data and networking technology in their work environment. -Developing data catalouges and software-tools by exploiting latest developments of software-technology (WWW/HTML, Java, etc.). -Populating the CEO's system INFEO with information related to Austria (or institutes, projects, datasets etc.). -Participating in international consortia to generate additional services and databanks relevant for CEO (e.g. literature inventories). -Consulting research institutes, companies and governmental bodies on planning multinational cooperative projects, also including organisations in the neighbouring EU application states.
