RACE – Rapid Action on Covid-19 and EO

European Commission and ESA (IT)

Summary

The Rapid Action coronavirus Earth observation dashboard presents the results of the Joint cooperation between ESA and the European Commission on Covid 19 and EO.

The platform demonstrates how the use of Earth observation data can help shed new light on societal and economic changes currently taking place owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

Across all European countries and ESA Member States, the dashboard showcases examples of how different analyses over a wide range of Earth observation data coming from the Copernicus Sentinels and Third Party Missions, as well as ground-based observations and advanced numerical models via the Copernicus Services can illustrate these socio-economic and environmental changes. The dashboard not only captures the effects of the lockdown, but also shows how Europe is beginning its recovery and is relaunching a number of activities.


The data populating the dashboard are a collective effort of a number of industrial and academic partners.
