Today marks the start of a new project, bringing an even better value to Copernicus data. We are excited about the potential of the "Earth Observation Value Adding Services (EO VAS)" project and the cooperation with Sinergise - a GIS IT company situated in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The objective of EO VAS is to reshape the Earth Observation Value Chain by significantly simplifying development and delivery of Earth Observation Added Value Services. It is built around Sinergise’s engine for archiving, processing and distribution of satellite data, and GeoVille’s extensive set of processing algorithms.
EO VAS is focusing on agriculture and non-life insurance as well as on the entire optical EO space industry application domain field. The main delivery of the project is an EO-Toolset that has the ambition to become the first virtual market place for EO VAS, where all participants in the EO value chain (end-users, data and service providers) can benefit.
The project’s innovation hub will foster development of EO services, becoming a virtual meeting place for the exchange of new ideas and encourages experimenting with EO VAS. It will present a virtual business incubator for emerging EO oriented start-ups that lack the means to commercialise their EO services by themselves.
The H2020 financed project, will provide a pre-processing engine for other EO domain services, helping them to reduce pre-processing costs and to turn their attention into domain expertise and higher quality of their products.
