The CAMEO (Creating an Architecture for Manipulating Earth Observation data) project seeks to democratise access to an ever-increasing volume of Earth Observation data to develop a sustainable internationally trading Earth Observation services sector in Ireland.

CAMEO will provide a new means of accessing international EO/UAV/Land-based sensor data and mechanisms for combining this with national climate, agriculture, and marine databases to unlock real, tangible potential for Irish industry, the public sector, researchers. CAMEO will establish Ireland as an international leader in using EO data for economic and societal benefit.
