Data Providers

A Data Provider is a user (representing for example an institution) willing to contribute with his own data or with a novel service.

The registration process for data providers is supervised by an InGeoCloudS administrator who must check and authorize the Data Provider account request. For that, please send an email to contact [at] ingeoclouds[dot]eu

The platform creates a Workspace for each Data Provider. A Workspace simply provides the possibility to store (and access) his own data in a private database of the InGeoCloudS Elastic Database Server, and/or in a private folder of the InGeoCLOUDS Elastic File Server.
