In the last days, CLIMOS Project was represented in the 125th OGC Member Meeting in Frascati, Italy.
This one-week event of technology showcases dozens of Working Group meetings to improve standards and domains, special sessions, workshops, and keynotes, demonstrated the value of the consortium’s community of experts. The The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Collaborative Innovations and Solutions program shared the latest concepts in climate, space, aviation, and more: all powered by our community.
CLIMOS was presented during the OGC panel “The Climate for Good Health may be Changing” hosted at the European Space Agency – ESA by Nenad Gligoric, from Zentrix Lab, and Nils Hempelmann, from The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), both partners of the CLIMOS project.
Part of the discussion was on how climate change can alter the distribution and behaviour of disease-carrying animals and insects, leading to increased incidences of diseases.
The main problems that CLIMOS could address with its approach are the monitoring of:
1. Changes in the distribution of disease vectors: Climate change alters the distribution of disease-carrying insects and other vectors, leading to the spread of diseases to new areas;
2. Changes in the behaviour of disease vectors due to the changes in temperature, and precipitation patterns, making them more active and increasing the likelihood of disease transmission, and can extend the life cycle of disease-carrying insects;
3. Changes in the distribution of vegetation can increase or decrease the risk of disease transmission.
