Daniele De Vecchi, post-doc at our lab, is in Brussels today and tomorrow to present his results from the MyGeoss grant that he won after a successful application to the third MyGeoss competitive call for proposals, submitted when he was still PhD student here.

MYGEOSS is a two-year project (2015-16) by the European Commission to develop GEOSS-based (Global Earth Observation System of Systems) smart Internet applications informing European citizens on the changes affecting their local environment.

Daniele submitted an application aimed at implementing Cloopsy, a mobile application designed to collect data from a crowd of volunteers. In particular, the idea is to ask them to contribute with a picture and to select a land cover class based on the CORINE taxonomy.

The app is available on the Android store and will soon also be on iTunes.
