Copernicus Research and User Support (RUS) celebrates its first anniversary

31 August 2018

The Copernicus Research and User Support (RUS) is a free-of-charge service funded by the European Commission. It offers a scalable cloud environment that enables users to remotely store and process Earth Observation (EO) data. This vast amount of free and open-source global data from Copernicus (which is produced at a rate of around 20 TB of data per day) comes from satellites, in addition to ground-based, airborne and seaborne measurement systems. To unleash the benefits of this data, the RUS Service also provides training sessions and webinars, as well as a helpdesk and a team of EO and IT experts who address user queries.
