2nd Dissemination Workshop

The 2nd CryoLand Dissemination Workshop, addressing mainly users of Central European, was held on 4 December 2014 in Innsbruck, Austria. After an introduction of the CryoLand consortium into the final versions of the CryoLand snow, glacier and lake and river ice products, and the demonstration of the usage of the CryoLand GeoPortal, users of various working areas presented the usage of CryoLand products for their applications.

23 users from Austria, Romania, Switzerland and Sweden participated in the workshop, and provided valuable feedback about the CryoLand products and services. The users JRC and MetOffice UK sent their feedback in form of presentations, given by members of the CryoLand team.
