The WORSICA is a one-stop-shop service to provide access to customized remote sensing services based on Copernicus data.
Currently, three services are available:

  • Coast water-land interface
  • Inland water detection
  • Leak detection

The WORSICA service is available at the EOSC Marketplace






This work is being developed under the EOSC-Synergy project and the INCD project. Preliminary versions of the leak detection algorythms were developed in the WADI project.
