Introduction to the Data Warehouse: Status, Outlook and ESA GCM Contribution
Hoersch, Bianca

The GMES Space Component Data Access System (GSCDA) pre-operational infrastructure is in place to cover data provision for GMES Services for the period before the GMES Sentinels are launched. It will later evolve to include the Sentinels. The GSCDA relies on the ground segments of various GMES Contributing Missions (GCMs) plus a set of coordinating functions in charge of ensuring internal coordination and providing the GSP with a harmonized access to GSC data. The presentation will provide an overview over the current datasets being provided in response to the GMES services requirements, as well as provide an outlook for future phases of the GSCDA data supply.
