Interactive demo EOX

The interactive demo at the top of this page offers four background maps selectable at the top right of the map.

Apart from the motivation to create beautiful maps one of the main drivers is to split background from overlay layers to enable embedding data properly in between. The reason is that both background and overlay provide spatial context in different ways. The background (e.g. Terrain Light) provides an idea of land usage and topography while the overlay adds labels and line features like borders or streets to provide more detailed information. Depending on the background map one of two overlays can be enabled. Over the Terrain map a dark version is used whereas a bright version for better visibility can be enabled over the marble background maps.

EOX::Maps are used by the European Space Agency (ESA) in their next generation user services (ngEO).

The ngEO system uses EOX' background and overlay maps in its central map display to put search results of Earth Observation data in spatial context.

EOX hosts a demo of an INSPIRE download service for the EU-DEM dataset of the European Environment Agency (EEA).

EOX::Maps are used in its central map display to define spatial subsets for downloading the original data.
