Abstract: The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission stores large amounts of low, medium, high and very high resolution earth observation data in a heterogeneous manner. The scientific units within the JRC are the users of these data. An internal project called Community Image Data portal (CID) has been set up to rationalize the situation. One of its main activities is to implement and maintain a core repository with catalogue, processing and dissemination services. Access to the earth observation data and their usage is mainly governed by the various licensing terms and conditions imposed by data providers. Therefore the CID project is also involved in definitions of these terms and conditions mainly through the set up and management of framework contracts. These contracts shall take into account data policy definitions laid down by various initiatives in the spatial data domain.
