Copernicus is the global monitoring program for the environment and security, formerly known as GMES. This initiative is led by the European Commission in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA). The Commission, which acts on behalf of the European Union, is responsible for the general initiative, the definition of the requirements and the management of the services.

Copernicus provides accurate, real-time and easily accessible information for environmental management, understanding and mitigating the effects of climate change and ensuring civil security. In this context, ESA has developed a new series of SENTINEL space missions for the operational needs of the Copernicus program; these missions present a series of technologies, such as radar and multispectral instruments for monitoring ground, ocean and atmosphere. The data from this Constellation can be a valid support in the processes of land management and integration in the Ground Survey / Validation studies coming from VHR and UAV images.

The volume collects the extended abstracts of the reports presented in the 12th Remote Sensing Thematic Workshop and describes the EOS (Earth Observation System) applications and services within the Copernicus framework.
