This partnership establishes a framework of cooperation between EuroGeographics and its members and the EEA, with the main goal being to increase access to authoritative national datasets within the Copernicus programme represented by the EEA.

Aims and objectives

Logo Eurogeographics

EuroGeographics is an independent international not-for-profit organisation representing Europe’s National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authorities. On behalf of the Copernicus programme, and as responsible for the cross-cutting coordination of Copernicus Access to In Situ Data, the EEA signed in March 2017 a cooperation agreement in order to make more national geospatial datasets available for the benefit of Copernicus.  

In 2022, the EEA and EuroGeographics renewed their partnership in order to improve cooperation in the context of the Copernicus programme, covering all relevant Copernicus Services (Land, Emergency and Security) and increasing the number of in-situ datasets made available for the generation of Copernicus products. These datasets are made available to the Copernicus Entrusted Entities and its providers via the Copernicus Reference Data Access Portal (CORDA), managed by the EEA.
