The European Space Agency Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions S2-4Sci Land and Water - Study 3: Classification project is developing fully automated land-cover classification processes for Sentinel-2 optical imagery. The project is led by CBK and in partnership with IABG and the Univ. of Jena. The project will develop automated classification workflows for the Copernicus Sentinel-2 imagery to produce a Global Land Cover Classification.
The MELODIES project is developing sustainable services based on Linked Open Data. EOXPLORE is leading the work package on Crisis Mapping Services and developing together with Terranea flood disaster and geospatial crisis mapping services.
This project prepared and described for the European Environment Agency forest pattern metrics based on the HRL Forests pan-European product. Together with Terranea and Dr. Ostapowicz computed the Morphological Spatial Pattern Analysis using the Guidos Toolbox . The results provide insight into forest structure across the EEA39 countries.
Working together with the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (Seville), this contract will analyse food prices data sources and collection methodoligies that are being applied in developing countries. We will be looking into how crowdsourcing can be successfully applied together with Terranea and H. Zeug.

How does soil sealing relate to land-take?. We looked at the Copernicus land services pan-European component HRL imperviousness change and CLC based land take datasets to understand the inter-calibration of indicators. We looked at the differences, commonalities, complementarity, added value and provided recommendations together with Terranea and Dr. Olah.
Better flood information in your hands is FLOODIS. A Copernicus downstream service focusing on flood disasters in Europe. EOXPLORE developed the flood forecasting and nowcasting backend processing service. The app can be downloaded for free and you can watch a video.
