The aim of the MEO-Climate service is to provide local authorities – and other local or national stakeholders – with a range of information and indicators to support the implementation of the PCAET (local climate-air-energy plans).
MEO-Climate is intended to generate and deliver a range of mapping indicators with coherent informational content.
The first version of MEO-Climate takes the form of three indicators, presented for a given – theoretically rural – region:
- Water Reserve: mapping and monitoring of water reserves
- Green Energy: mapping of existing solar panels and optimised installation of new facilities
- Agri Practice: monitoring of agricultural practices and their characteristics (maintenance and nature of plant cover, hedges, grass strips for green corridors, etc.)
- SCOT (plan for coherent territorial development) in Gascony, South-West France
- Copernicus – Sentinel 1 & 2 and/or SPOT 6-7 and/or Pleiades
- Open data: land register, urban planning documents, OpenStreetMap
- Other data belonging to EPCIs (public entities for cooperation between municipalities)
MEO-Climate and its information are openly accessible through a web-based HMI developed by MEOSS. The information in MEO-Climate can also be directly integrated in an existing information system, for example, by local authorities.
The information in MEO-Climate is presented in the form of dynamic indicators whose informational content – which may be sensitive – must be approved by local elected representatives and administrative departments prior to publication.
