WetMon - Enabling an operational Sentinel-1 wetland monitoring service for the Earth Observation Data Centre (EODC) (WetMon)

2015-01-01 – 2016-06-30

Satellite Earth Observation (EO) contributes to wetland monitoring as a proven source of transparent,
timely and consistent information on wetlands at regional or national scale. The long-term aim of the
service provider GeoVille is to establish an operational wetland monitoring service enabled via the
Earth Observation Data Centre (EODC), which can be selected and accessed by the user
independently via web and mobile enabled data channels. The dedicated and full exploitation of
Sentinel-1 observations to provide operational wetland 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 wetland types /
areas as well as for hydrologic condition monitoring and
• an 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 WetMon.
