WHAT TO EXPECT
From 12 April to 30 May 2018 you get the chance to be among the first to test the Copernicus App Lab tools. You will have a chance to experience how our tools make it easy to find, analyse and integrate data into your apps. We invite you to join our beta testing phase, and provide us with any feedback you may have, and maybe we will get a chance to work together on your app during the ESA Space App Camp in September.
When providing your feedback, please also tell us about the app idea you came up with when playing around with the tools. The best idea will receive a wild card to take part in a week of coding, exploration, and business coaching at the European Space Agency’s annual Space App Camp. We’ll take care of your travel and accommodation costs! To get the ball rolling, learn how last year’s winner used the Copernicus App Lab tools. To get hands-on support for your app idea, be sure to attend the Copernicus App Lab workshop at the EO & Copernicus Technologies conference on 19 April 2018 in Bochum, Germany, or the ActInSpace hackathon in Munich, Germany on 25-26 May 2018.
WHAT TO USE
In order to become familiar with the data and new tools, we strongly recommend starting with the “Greenest City” use case we have prepared for you! There you will find useful tips that will help you complete the beta test.
To get a better understanding of the datasets and even run some analytics on them, you can use the tools described in the Data & Analytics section.
If you are interested in using linked data to build your application, you can find more details in the Linked Data section. There you can view all the datasets we have prepared for you as linked data, along with details and examples of how to access and combine the data in your application.
Let’s get testing! If you find yourself lost or in need of assistance, we’re here to help. You can find details on how to communicate with the support team here. Your thoughts are also important to us, so please spend some time filling out the questionnaire at the end of the testing phase. This will enable us to incorporate your feedback into the further development of the tools.
