NEANIAS is a research and innovation action project funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 program. The project addresses the challenge of prototyping novel solutions for the underwater, atmospheric and space research communities, creating a collaborative research ecosystem, and contributing to the effective materialization of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). NEANIAS drives the co-design, implementation, delivery, and integration into EOSC of innovative thematic and core services, derived from state-of-the-art assets and practices in the target scientific communities. We present the overall NEANIAS ecosystem architecture, with an emphasis on its core visualization services, detailing their specifications and software development plan, and focusing on the underpinning service-oriented architecture for their delivery. We report on the underlying ideas and guiding principles for designing such visualization services, outlining their current release status and future development roadmaps towards Technological Readiness Level (TRL) 8 maturity and EOSC integration.
