e-shape at the Ninth International Conference on Remote Sensing & Geoinformation of Environment

On the 3rd -5th of April, 2023 our e-shape partner Ioannis Manakos (CERTH) will participate in the Ninth International Conference on Remote Sensing and Geoinformation of Environment in Cyprus, Ayia Napa with a presentation entitled “Inundation mapping in service of land cover evidence-based change monitoring”.

Inundation mapping has been a major activity within the myEcosystem showcase and mySpace pilot in the e-shape project. The respective service line enables monitoring of the presence of open surface water at a specific location through time. This is an important indicator of the water-energy-matter exchanges that take place at this location. Results are configured in a way that they become exchangeable with further water management and land cover/use service lines. This keynote positioning discusses how e-shape results may be assimilated (as a valuable Environmental Descriptor) and become part of an evidence based change framework for land monitoring; following a globally relevant change taxonomy. This in turn aligns e-shape findings with the Driver-Pressure-State-Impact-Response (DPSIR) Framework, taking also into consideration the time of occurrence, manifestation, and duration of the event. Policy and decision makers, scientists, researchers, private sector employees, and the public may thus benefit, better understand change processes and their impacts or benefits at areas of interest.
