Start using CloudEO Workbench and tackle today's biggest challenges!

The CloudEO Workbench gives you pay-per-use access to a powerful virtual desktop configured for geoprocessing. You can connect through your browser and perform your remote sensing and GIS workflows with the same look and feel as in your current desktop environment.

With CloudEO Workbench you can save time and costs and you can easily publish your results. It can be connected to data archives and comes with readily installed remote sensing and GIS software of your choice ( QGIS, GAIA or ESA Sentinel Toolbox, R language, ORFEO tool box, Geoserver, GRASS-SAGA, PolSARPro, Pyhton, PostgreSQL/PostGIS). You can use COTS software and a wide range of GeoData as a Service on a pay-per-use basis. You pay only for data, software and IT as long as you need them. If you want to use your own data or software, simply upload them into your private workspace and combine them with the pre-installed software on CloudEO Workbench.
