ENVISION is networking with other projects related to the Earth Observation with the aim of how their solutions could contribute to ENVISION and how complementary these products are to ENVISION.
SAFERS aims to support societies becoming more resilient when acting against forests fires. The project is currently developing a platform which will be open and integrating several intelligent services to act as a forest fire Decision Support System. The platform will use information from different sources such as: Earth Observation from Copernicus and GEOSS, fire sensors in forests, topographic data, weather forecasts and even crowdsourced data from social media and other apps that can be used by citizens and first responders to provide situational in-field information.
NIVA aims to modernise IACS by making efficient use of digital solutions and e-tools, by creating reliable methodologies and harmonised data sets for monitoring agricultural performance while reducing administrative burden for farmers, paying agencies and other stakeholders. his overall objective is made operational in the specific objectives and demonstrated in 9 use Cases (pilots) 1. Integrate and reuse IACS evolutions based on open standards and common services 2. Build on farmers’ acceptance of the Smart Monitoring methodology 3. Reduce the gap between current use and potential broader use of IACS data 4. Create a permanent exchange platform for discussion and exchange
VITIGEOSS project aims at integrating an ecosystem of services that will be able to offer a range of features including forecasts, predictive models, advanced visualization, in a decision support system, able to support the winegrowers in the vineyard management process. The main scope of VITIGEOSS is to deploy a platform able to create, manage and disseminate Earth Observation data and services, relevant for the wine industry, to optimize sustainable vine cultivation via decision support systems (DSS) on phenology, irrigation, fertilizer, disease, and business operation management. The platform will be validated in 3 demo sites in Spain, Portugal, and Italy.
EuropaBON designe a European Biodiversity Observation Network. To do this, EuropaBON will consult with- and engage stakeholders in all stages of the project and use state of the art models to produce Essential Biodiversity Variables (EBVs) and Essential Ecosystem Service Variables (EESVs) developed by the Group on Earth Observations Biodiversity Observation Network (GEO BON). More specifically, EuropaBON will assess current monitoring efforts to identify gaps, data and workflow bottlenecks, and analyse cost-effectiveness of different monitoring schemes. The results of this assessment will be used to inform the design of improved monitoring schemes able to integrate in-situ and remote sensing data through models, and using novel technologies, to deliver more complete and less biased biodiversity information with multiple benefits to users and society. A set of showcases will demonstrate how the EBVs and EESVs provide timely and relevant data for EU member states and regions, including policy-relevant indicators to assess progress in biodiversity targets, short-term biodiversity and ecosystem services forecasts, and scenarios that support IPBES and other assessments. Finally, EuropaBON will also investigate the the feasibility of setting up a centre to coordinate monitoring activities across Europe.
As Europe’s Forum for Innovation and Research in Earth Observation, FIRE aims to build a strong community and a well-defined, recurrent process that will help to capture the “now” and to shape the “tomorrow” of the European EO sector. To achieve this overarching objective, FIRE will nurture coordinated exchanges between research and innovation actors, including policymakers, technologists, businesspeople and researchers, towards designing a long-term Research and Innovation Strategy that will guide the development, delivery and uptake of EO services in Europe. This exercise will construct a thorough picture of the current-state-of play and the emerging trends in six selected sectors: Agriculture, urban planning, infrastructure, wind energy, raw materials and marine.
