An excellent article :-)

The Copernicus Programme, with over 12 TB of Earth Observation (EO) data 
generated daily, is the third largest data provider globally. Our full, free 
and open data policy allows anyone anywhere in the world to access and use the 
data and information. But that is not the full picture. There is another 
community that often provides an important link to these vast amounts of data 
and the end user by providing tools, plug-ins and libraries to handle the data 
and make it easier for the end users to use it – this community is organised 
under the umbrella of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo).

This article is dedicated to all members of this community, the geospatial 
specialists, developers and enthusiasts, who help us unleash the full power of 
Copernicus, and shows the interaction between open data and Free and Open 
Source Software (FOSS).
