European Environment Agency case study

Windows Azure Helps the EEA Go Green and Cut Development Time

EEA Thumb

An agency of the European Union, the European Environment Agency (EEA) provides independent and reliable information on the environment for policy makers and the general public. The agency is working towards raising environmental awareness across Europe by delivering easy-to-understand information about a number of environmental topicsamong them, water and air quality. It also encourages citizens to contribute their own observations about the environment around them. Working with Microsoft, it developed the Eye On Earth platform, based on the Windows Azure "cloud" services operating system. Users can view water or air quality from the 32 member countries of the EEA, using high-definition Bing maps. The EEA has also launched the Environmental Atlas of Europe, which features stories told by eyewitnesses about their first-hand experiences of climate change. Both solutions can help broaden awareness of the impacts of environmental change and help people in Europe make better-informed choices about their environment.
