Enabeling an Operational SENTINEL-2 CROP Monitoring Service for the Earth Observation Data Centre (EODC)

Short Description

Satellite Earth Observation (EO) contribute to crop monitoring as a proven source for transparent, timely and consistent information on agricultural productivity at field, regional or national scale. 

The long-term aim of the service provider GeoVille is to establish an operational crop monitoring service enabled via the Earth Observation Data Centre (EODC), which can be selected and accessed by the user independently via a web and mobile enabled data channels.

The dedicated and full exploitation of Sentinel-2 observations to provide operational crop monitoring information solutions will require preparatory activities to enable a dedicated processing and dissemination capacity. Specifically, the proposed project shall enable

  • dedicated, supercomputer ready processing chains for the identification of crop types / areas as well as for condition monitoring and
  • a online, interactive service order and delivery platform for the EODC.

The key technical components to reach this goal shall be developed and demonstrated for national, European and international requirements within the framework of CROPMON.
