The LDA project aims at implementing on a large scale, and in a real life test bed, innovative mobile services based on COPERNICUS and GNSS (The Global Navigation Satellite System, http://www.gsa.europa.eu/) in the region of Attica, Greece. The region of Attica is an ideal area for demonstrating the potential of such kind of services for addressing societal challenges. Attica has the highest concentration of manufacturing and commercial activity in Greece. It is the main hub of communications, with facilities for the rapid transport of raw materials and finished products.
In 2013 a competition was organized for mobile telecommunications companies from Greece on the use of satellite navigation and Earth observation data.
