Data and services for the Solid Earth


The purpose of the Solid Earth Centre is to facilitate access to data and contribute to the creation of new products and services by adding value to the available spatial and in-situ data. It is part of the national and European landscapes in close coordination with the infrastructure in place and under construction.

For this, the Solid Earth Center, has the task to federate the existing centres in the service of the Solid Earth community.

It relies on a portal giving access to spatial data, in-situ and experimentation of the domain. It aims to provide added value, especially for data and services in fields where data centres do not exist or need to be developed and in the articulation with European and international systems. The Center, in collaboration with other structures in the field and within the research infrastructure Data Terra, will strengthen the Solid Earth community by giving it access to the data and products it needs to his research.
