Programme(s) H2020-EU.3.5.5. - Developing comprehensive and sustained global environmental observation and information systems
Topic(s) SC5-16-2019 - Development of commercial activities and services through the use of GEOSS and Copernicus data
Call for proposal H2020-SC5-2019-1
Funding Scheme CSA - Coordination and support action
Overall budget: 999.375,00 €
The project aims to fulfil the need for continuous and systematic monitoring of agricultural land, shifting the focus from fragmented monitoring limited to specific fields and dates to territory-wide and all-year-round monitoring. It will make use of heterogeneous types of available data (EO-based, in situ, open data, and historical on-field check data) and state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies (automatic pixel/texture/object oriented change detection and classification methods, machine learning, data fusion, multi-source and multi-temporal data management) for providing a fully-automated and scalable toolbox of services, built in close interaction with its future customers. ENVISION will fully exploit the wealth of data made available through GEOSS and Copernicus and its synergetic use with other data to develop data products such as: Cultivated crop type maps; Soil Organic Carbon; Vegetation status; Crop growth; Grassland mowing/ploughing; Soil erosion.
The ENVISION toolbox will be comprised of: a monitoring service of sustainable agricultural practices, tools that PAs & CBs can provide to farmers for adhering to environmentally friendly agricultural practices, an Add-on Development Tool.
The project will be tested and validated in a pre-operational environment by potential future customers of its products and services.
