The European viDeo Meteor Observation Network (EDMONd) has been established only recently (Kornoš et al., 2013; Kornoš et al., 2014a; Kornoš et al., 2014b). The network originates from spontaneous cooperation among observers in several parts of Europe and has been created from initiative of Jakub Koukal and Roman Piffl (CEMeNt).

As a result of the network, the first version of The European viDeo MeteOr Network Database (EDMOND), containing data from the years 2009 to half of 2012, was presented at the IMC conference in La Palma, Spain in 2012 ( Kornoš et al., 2013).

The EDMONd Network has been enlarged in recent years and at present consists of observers from the following national and intenational networks (in alphabetical order):

BOAM (Base des Observateurs Amateurs de Meteores, France)

BosNet (Bosnia)

CEMeNt (Central European Meteor Network, cross-border network of Czech and Slovak amateur observers)

CMN (Croatian Meteor Network or HrvatskaMeteorskaMreza, Croatia)

FMA (Fachgruppe Meteorastronomie, Switzerland)

HMN (HungarianMeteor Network or Magyar Hullocsillagok Egyesulet, Hungary)

IMO VMN (IMO Video Meteor Network)

MeteorsUA (Ukraine)

IMTN (Italian amateur observers in Italian Meteor and TLE Network, Italy)

NEMETODE (Network for Meteor Triangulation and Orbit Determination, United Kingdom)

PFN (Polish Fireball Network or Pracownia Komet i Meteorow, PkiM, Poland)

Stjerneskud (Danish all-sky fireball cameras network, Denmark)

SVMN (Slovak Video Meteor Network, Slovakia)

UKMON (UK Meteor Observation Network, United Kingdom)

The most recent established network (January 2014) – BRAMON (BRAzilian MeteOr Network) is situated in the southern hemisphere. This network is independent of EDMOND database, its task is to map meteor activity in the southern hemisphere.

The EdMOND 5 v.03 database (created accroding to Kornoš et al. 2014a,b) contains orbital elements and geophysical data of 252 425 meteors from 2001 to 2015. The database is saved in csv and text format. The text version does not contain all items.
