The JRC is organising the annual user workshop of the Mapping component of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS) on 22-23 September. It will be held during two half-days and include interactive presentations, trainings, discussions in breakout groups and open discussions.
Since the last user workshop in May 2019 many things happened in the on-demand Mapping modules of CEMS. The workshop offers a unique opportunity to learn about the revised portfolios of Rapid- and Risk & Recovery Mapping, how to best make use of both modules and hear about other recent developments. As every year it is the occasion to exchange and discuss with the JRC, the service providers and with other users on the service and to contribute defining its evolution.
Start: 22-September 2020, 9:00
End: 23 September 2020, 13:30
The workshop will take place on 22-23 September 2020 and it will be a virtual event.
