Copernicus DIAS: Discover Mundi Web Services
Mundi Web Services, the Atos Copernicus Data and Information Access Services (DIAS), is a user’s one-stop shop for setting up an Earth observation (EO) related service.
No need to hunt around for data, tools, infrastructure, and bring it all together. It’s already there! This Copernicus DIAS platform brings you the standardised access to the data, and many more advanced services. As user, you just open your office, upload your image processing algorithms, buy what you need through the Marketplace, and start working. The Mundi platform gives unlimited, free and complete access to Copernicus data. It can also provide a scalable computing and storage environment for third parties. Third parties will be empowered to offer advanced value-adding services integrating Copernicus with their own data and tools to the benefit of their own users. Mundi provides a cloud-based one-stop shop for all Copernicus satellite data and imagery, and information from the Copernicus services. Furthermore, it also gives access to sophisticated processing tools and resources.
Users can do it all by themselves, andthe helpdesk will also be pleased to assist you, if desired.
Mundi is ATOS’ vision to integrate space data into the digital economy. This first release objective is to provide insights on how services could be developed and deployed.

About Copernicus DIAS
The European Commission has identified a widely shared need to access the Copernicus data and information close to processing facilities that allow further value extraction from the data. As this need is shared across Europe and in order to avoid duplication of data storage activities across Europe, the EC has identified the opportunity to federate this common need and respond through a dedicated service approach that is complementary to the traditional data download. This service approach, the DIAS, will offer access to Copernicus data and information close to processing facilities and, through this, create the possibility to easily build applications and offer added-value services.
In order to foster the competition and the development of creative solutions, the EC has decided that, there would be a minimum of three different DIAS, operated by different consortia. The main DIAS components are the back-office infrastructure and the DIAS interface services through which the user-established front office components can be connected to the back office infrastructure. The DIAS-provided back office is the scalable computing environment in which users can build and operate their own services based on Copernicus. The back-office will give unlimited, free and complete access to Copernicus data and information, and any other data that may be offered by the DIAS provider. The DIAS interface services encompass tools and services that will make it easy for the users to create their own applications. The environment should offer scalable computing and storage resources to the users at competitive commercial conditions. Finally, the providers of the DIAS will provide support to users, and making sure their access to the DIAS data runs smoothly.
