CID Action


The competitiveness of the European economy benefits from increased access to harmonised information and interoperable services related to items of community policy relevance. Innovation in a knowledge intensive society includes making this information available in an efficient way and storing it in a secure manner.

The CID (Community Image Data portal) is an Action launched under the 7th Framework Program, in the Digital Earth and Reference Data Unit. It relates to the acquisition, access and storage of Satellite (and aerial) Remote Sensing data in the context of the JRC and Commission Services' needs. The Action also provides support in the field of data policy and data management for GMES.
