CryoLand developed, implemented and validated a standardized and sustainable service on snow and land ice monitoring as a Downstream Service within Copernicus. The service provides geospatial products on the seasonal snow cover, glaciers, and lake / river ice derived from Earth observation satellite data in response to user needs. Operational processing lines and service infrastructure for various product types were developed on top of existing Web service environments supporting the publication, provision and chaining of geospatial data services. The CryoLand Geoportal offers interactive maps, search and download functions via Web browsers. Full end to end system tests and verification in pre-operational environment have been performed in cooperation with users in near real time.
As planned, the CryoLand project was successfully completed in January 2016. Nevertheless, the near-real time services of selected products have been extended beyond the lifetime of the project, and are providing the continuity of near-real time information on snow and land ice for our users.
