The overall objective of the Action is to develop an original, web-based, scalable and modular system ("Geo-harmonizer") for hosting and accessing various thematic geospatial data layers (vector and raster GIS layers) to support cross-border services over the entire continental Europe.
The beneficiaries will create a data portal and a software suite extending a wide variety of free and open source software solutions for geospatial data (FOSS4G) in combination with state-of-the-art Machine Learning Algorithms, and will be made available within EU-supported High Performance Computing (HPC)/Cloud computing infrastructures.
The functionality of the system will be demonstrated vis-à-vis a list of new, added-value, pan-EU data sets including seamless continental Europe cover time-series (2000-2020), environmental quality indicators, potential natural vegetation maps and OpenStreetMap+ (improved continental Europe version of the OpenStreetMap). The data generated by the Action will be integrated into the European Data Portal.
The outcome of the Action is to use the Geo-harmonizer to connect state-of-the-art remote sensing data sources (Sentinel-2, Landsat, and similar), machine learning framework, cloud, and High Performance Computing and which will result in a significant reduction of processing and delivery time.
