    Íslenskur texti er í vinnslu. This raster dataset is a visibility analysis of several wind turbine projects across Iceland which are a part of the fifth phase of the master plan (Rammaáætlun http://www.ramma.is/). The area analysed is a 45 km buffer zone around each wind turbine project. The cutout areas in the 45 km buffer have no visibility due to visual obstruction. The red colour represents high visibility, fading into yellow, with the green colour representing low visibility of the wind turbines. Zones of theoretical visibility have been classified as near (0-2km), intermediate (2-15km) and remote zone (>15km) which are represented in the colour grading. It should be considered that atmospheric conditions, lighting, shading and more affect visibility and detectability. The perception of the wind projects in the green zone will be more fading in the landscape without direct detection, while in the red coloured zone the wind turbine is a prominent element in the landscape. For further information consider reading the respective chapter in the project report or check out further tools like the Ramma 3D map. As a digital elevation model the 10x10 m resolution ÍslandsDEM is used which sets the dataset pixel resolution to 10x10 m. An average viewer height of 1.75 m is assumed, while the wind turbine heights vary between 150 m and 200 m depending on project sites. The maximal height of the wind turbine is considered, meaning to the upper blade tip. See more information in the table on the side. The curvature of the earth is considered in the simulation and a default atmospheric refraction of 0.13 is assumed.

    Þekja sem sýnir halla lands í gráðum byggt á landlíkani Landmælinga Íslands (IslandsDEM útg. 1). Aðeins er sýndur halli á ákveðnu bili sem miðast við algengan upptakahalla snjóflóða. Litir og flokkun halla er ætluð til að hjálpa ferðafólki í fjalllendi að meta halla í brekkum með tilliti til upptakahalla snjóflóða. Þekjuna er hægt að birta sem myndkorta-flísar (XYZ, 512x512 pixlar) í Web-Mercator vörpun (EPSG:3857).

    The Geonetwork Catalog of the Arctic Biodiversity Data Service (ABDS) https://abds.is/ is an integral component of the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) initiative https://www.caff.is/. CAFF is a working group of the Arctic Council dedicated to addressing the conservation challenges facing Arctic biodiversity and promoting sustainable management practices in the region. As part of CAFF's mandate, the ABDS aims to provide a comprehensive and accessible repository of biodiversity-related data and information specific to the Arctic. The Geonetwork Catalog within ABDS serves as a centralized platform for discovering, accessing, and sharing geospatial datasets relevant to Arctic biodiversity conservation and management. It hosts a diverse range of spatial data layers, including species distribution maps, habitat classifications, ecosystem assessments, land cover maps, and more. These datasets are sourced from various contributors, including scientific research projects, monitoring programs, government agencies, indigenous knowledge holders, and non-governmental organizations. Hereafter you can find the WMS, WFS and GeoNetwork connections.

    Copernicus is the Earth observation component of the European Union’s Space programme, looking at our planet and its environment to benefit all European citizens. It offers information services that draw from satellite Earth Observation and in-situ (non-space) data. The European Commission manages the Programme. It is implemented in partnership with the Member States, the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), EU Agencies and Mercator Océan. Vast amounts of global data from satellites and ground-based, airborne, and seaborne measurement systems provide information to help service providers, public authorities, and other international organisations improve European citizens' quality of life and beyond. The information services provided are free and openly accessible to users. But why is it called Copernicus you may ask? By choosing Copernicus's name, we are paying homage to a great European scientist and observer: Nicolaus Copernicus. Copernicus' theory of the heliocentric universe made a pioneering contribution to modern science. Copernicus opened man to an infinite universe, previously limited by the rotation of the planets and the sun around the Earth, and created an understanding of a world without borders. Humanity was able to benefit from his insight. This set in motion a spirit of discovery through scientific research, which allowed us to understand better the world we live in. These value-adding activities are streamlined through six thematic streams of Copernicus services: - Atmosphere CAMS - Marine CMEMS - Land CLMS - Climate Change C3S - Security - Emergency EMS

  • The European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) is an intergovernmental organization founded in 1986, consisting of 30 member states dedicated to the operation of meteorological satellites for monitoring weather, climate, and environmental phenomena. Headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany, EUMETSAT plays a crucial role in providing accurate and timely data and services to meteorological agencies, researchers, and policymakers worldwide. EUMETSAT operates a fleet of geostationary and polar-orbiting satellites equipped with a variety of instruments for observing Earth's atmosphere, oceans, and land surfaces. These satellites capture a wealth of data on weather patterns, atmospheric composition, sea surface temperatures, and other meteorological and environmental parameters. By integrating data from its satellites with ground-based observations and numerical weather prediction models, EUMETSAT produces a wide range of products and services to support weather forecasting, climate monitoring, and environmental analysis. One of EUMETSAT's primary data dissemination channels is its EUMETCast system, a satellite-based data distribution network that delivers real-time and near-real-time satellite data, imagery, and products directly to users' ground receiving stations. Through EUMETCast, meteorological agencies, research institutions, and other users can access a wealth of meteorological and environmental data for use in weather forecasting, climate research, and disaster management applications. In addition to data dissemination, EUMETSAT offers a range of services and products tailored to the needs of its users. These include operational weather forecasting services, such as the Nowcasting SAF (Satellite Application Facility) and the Numerical Weather Prediction SAF, which provide specialized products for short-range weather prediction. EUMETSAT also collaborates with other international organizations, such as the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), to develop and deliver joint products and services for global weather and climate monitoring. Overall, EUMETSAT plays a critical role in advancing meteorological science and enhancing our understanding of Earth's weather and climate system. By operating state-of-the-art satellite systems and providing comprehensive data and services, EUMETSAT contributes to improved weather forecasting, climate monitoring, and disaster preparedness, ultimately benefiting society and the environment. This page serves as a description of the service and access to their data portal.
