NEWS & EVENTS
The COVERAGE Website (https://coverage.ceos.org/) was publicly released and announced on 31 August, 2020. Integration of portal data services & tools will occur by the conclusion of the Phase B (prototype system implementation) project work in October. Content development and further posts will be ongoing.
The COVERAGE Project held a very productive workshop session on Thursday 27 August 2020 with EUMETSAT. This involved a series of presentations and live demonstrations of prototype capabilities that stimulated great discussion. We appreciate the participation of our European counterparts quite late into the evening for them, and all the helpful, positive comments. Thanks for the interest and support, and we look forward to continued interactions in future. Many thanks also to the JPL COVERAGE team for their contributions and commitment to the project.

A presentation was given by Dr. V. Tsontos on OIIP/COVERAGE work related to the development of Animal Telemetry Data data standards was given in the Marine Data Cluster session on “Ocean in-situ Data Interoperability” at the ESIP-Summer 2020 Conference (https://sched.co/cIva). Some of the challenges associated with electronic tagging datasets were described, together with necessary extensions leading to the development of the nc-eTAG specification (https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.10159820).
The COVERAGE Project held a workshop session on Wed. 15 July 2020 during the recent ESIP-Summer 2020 meeting (https://sched.co/cItn).
The session included a series of presentations and demonstration of software capabilities followed by discussions with the audience.
Thanks to the COVERAGE team, participants and ESIP for a productive session!
An overview of the COVERAGE project was presented in the Remote Sensing session of the recent GEO-BON 2020 Conference held online 6-10 July.
Thanks to https://geobon.org/ for the invitation to participate and for putting on an interesting meeting.
