To continue the provision of the on-demand and fast provision of geospatial information under the Copernicus Emergency Management Service, the JRC has launched a call for tenders.

The submission deadline is 24 October 2018.

The Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS) is one of the six core services offered by Copernicus.

It is intended as an operational service provided to the users active in the field of disaster management in the EU Member States, the European Civil Protection Mechanism, the Commission’s Directorates General (DGs), the participating Executive Agencies, and international actors in humanitarian aid.

The call for tenders refers to the Rapid Mapping module of the CEMS Mapping component. It consists of the on-demand provision of geo-spatial information within hours in support to emergency management activities following an emergency event.

In rapid mode, the service is based on the acquisition, processing and analysis of satellite imagery and other geo-spatial raster and vector data sources.

The products are standardised maps and vector files with a set of parameters the user can choose when requesting the service.
