The EO4EU platform will make Earth Observation (EO) data more accessible than ever by providing an AI-augmented ecosystem with improved user interfaces for EO service and data powered by extended reality.

The main features of the EO4EU platform are based on the union of the following integration and interoperability processes:

  • EO Data Ecosystem: A common EU data fetching mechanism for consolidating initiatives and data pools, such as DestinE, GEOSS, INSPIRE, Copernicus, Galileo, ECMWF.
  • Dynamic EO Data Annotation: Leverages machine learning to enable dynamic annotation of the various environmental observation data sources.
  • Interoperability Layer: Providing efficient, dependable and high speed communication among the platform’s components, as well as the external data sources.
  • Policy and Decision Support Tools: Visualisation and data engineering processes improving environmental observation at the regional and local level across the EU.
  • Semantic-Enhanced Knowledge Graph: Augments the FAIR-ness of EO data knowledge and supports a sophisticated representation of data and their dynamics.

Use cases

  • Personalised Healthcare: Using EO4EU to further expand PASYFO, the first mobile allergy and airborne hazards forecasting service in the Nordics and Baltics.
  • Ocean monitoring: Optimising shipping industry travel time across different oceans through EO4EU tools by taking into account live weather data.
  • Food Security: Improving adaptability of food production using EO4EU access and tools to live climate data tracking and analysis in Italy.
  • Forest ecosystems: Improving forest productivity using EO4EU to simulate water, energy and carbon fluxes in Austria.
  • Soil erosion: Integrating rainfall datasets through EO4EU to assess soil susceptibility to water erosion across Europe.
  • Environmental Pests: Locust plague impact assessment and prediction in Yemen through EO4EU.
  • Civil Protection: Improving civil protection activities (disaster and calamity prevention and response) using EO acquired datasets in Italy.

The Benefits

  • For Research and academia: EO4EU supports researchers and research institutions requiring more accessible EO data for their own work.
  • For EO data providers: EO4EU can help promote further usage of your data through value added tools and services.
  • For the Private sector: Encouraging new innovations through more accessible EO data & tools for non-technical users.
  • For Citizen scientists and the general public: Enable citizen scientists to use more accessible EO tools and see how actions towards reducing the impacts of climate change and disasters through EO4EU tools.
  • For Policy makers and actors: Support your decision-making and climate action through new user friendly tools and enhanced EO capabilities.
  • For Standards development organisations: Contribution of new EO data related  standards coming out through practical integration activities.
