A story about agriculture, food security, e-shape, EuroGEO, GEO by Sven Gilliams/VITO

Just past the first anniversary of the e-shape project, you should by now all know our slogan; We e-shape EuroGEO!! But what does it mean? What is e-shape? What is EuroGEO and what does it mean for the agricultural services in Europe?

e-shape at EuroGEO Webinar | Monday 08 June 10:00 – 16:30 CET

As EuroGEO brings together a large part of the European Earth Observation community, it was essential to maintain the momentum and seize this opportunity to reflect on the initiative and how we can increase its role into GEO and better leverage the benefits GEO can bring to Europe.

The EO-tailored water information services success story!

Upscaling water services from national to global scales.

We are continuing to work on improving the main infrastructures which are: 1) existing setups of the hydrological model HYPE for different areas of interest, and 2) corresponding operational applications at SMHI for historical and near-realtime analyses and forecasts.

There is a growing realization amongst policy-makers that reliable and accurate soil monitoring information is required at scales ranging from regional to global to support ecosystem functions and services in a sustainable manner under the amplifying climate change enabling countries in target setting of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This paper aims to present a novel EO-based soil monitoring approach leveraging open-access Copernicus Sentinel data and Google Earth Engine platform. Building on key results from existing data mining approaches to extract bare soil reflectance values the current study delivers valuable insights on the synergistic use of open access optical and radar images.

The publication is part of the Showcase 4 (myEcoSystem) for which it is essential to have reliable data products over various scales to investigate ecosystem status and possible changes over time.

The GEOGLAM success story!
