MyOcean has presented its new Smartphone application to the first Innovation Convention, organised by the European Commission. This event showcased the results of European funded research and innovation programmes.
MyOcean is the EU-funded project (FP7) developing the pre-operational version of the GMES Marine Environment Monitoring service.
MyOcean provides open and free access to state-of-the-art Ocean analyses and forecasts based on the combination of satellite and in situ observations, and their assimilation into 3D models, for the past, in real time and for the near future.
Visitors to the MyOcean stand were able to manipulate an interactive globe featuring currents and temperatures and discover the first MyOcean application for a smartphone displaying Ocean forecasts from the bottom of the ocean to its surface.
They also discovered how any user can access the comprehensive MyOcean catalogue of products through the MyOcean web portal.
