How we helped:

DHI GRAS provides expert assistance to assist the implementation of various activities pertaining to the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS) managed by the EEA, including; technical support to produce Pan-European high-resolution mosaics; methodological and analytical support to review the readiness and uptake potential of the Data and Information Access Services (DIAS); management support to assist the EEA in managing the production contracts pertaining to the 2018 reference year update of the High Resolution Layers (HRL’s); onsite support to provide the technical staff at EEA with dedicated software routines easing their work with quality assurance of Copernicus Land products by on-site and customized training in GIS and Remote Sensing software.

Project highlights:

Providing on site consultancy support within processing and analysis of satellite images and other geospatial data

Development of dedicated and automated software procedures for handling and dissemination of large volume of image data

Production of high-resolution image mosaics and quality assurance of Pan-European Copernicus products such as hydrological layers, land cover maps and Digital Elevation Models

In more detail..

The framework agreement with the European Environmental Agency (EEA) covers consultancy services within Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) and advanced image processing of satellite imagery.

We were contracted to support the EEA with advanced image analysis and automation of tasks related to the handling of Copernicus land products, including production of pan-European high resolution Mosaics and methodological support for deriving deep learning approaches to extract small landscape features from very high resolution satellite images.

For this we provided on-site support for advanced image analysis including handling of large volume raster datasets, geometric corrections, image classifications, supervised and non-supervised classifications, data integration, publishing of web-services, mosaicking, image catalogue maintenance and so on.

We also provide analytical support to assess DIAS readiness for CLMS data integration and management support to facilitate the seamless production of the 2018 reference year high resolution layers.

European Environmental Agency:

The EEA is an agency of the European Union (EU), tasked with the provision of sound, independent and reliable environmental information.

The EEA undertakes important work related to the European Copernicus programme – previously known as Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES).

The GMES/Copernicus (2011-2013) Initial Operations of the land monitoring service (or ‘GIO’ land) prioritise multi-purpose information common to a large user community.
