InGeoClouds - INspired GEOdata CLOUD Services
InGeoCloudS is an innovative solution for the creation and sharing of environmental data. The project responds to the European INSPIRE Directive requiring public authorities to make all their geological data available via internet.
InGeoCloudS will facilitate public and professional access to a large volume of geological data, especially for the study and prevention of natural disasters: earthquake zones, risk of landslides, groundwater conditions. The reliability and flexibility of Cloud architectures will provide scientists with a high-quality, robust and cost-effective service.
InGeoClouds is a collaborative research project co-funded by the European Commission in the framework of the "Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme" (CIP). AKKA Technologies Group is participating as project coordinator and technical manager.
Eight partners from five countries are involved in this project:
AKKA Technologies (AKKA Research, France)
