At the occasion of the ‘European Land Monitoring at its crossroads’ conference held in Innsbruck, Austria, in October, GeoVille has released an update of the LandMonitoring.Earth public portal.
LandMonitoring.Earth is GeoVille’s high resolution global land cover monitoring system to automatically retrieve land cover based on multi-temporal data streams from the Copernicus satellites Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 as well as third party missions such as Landsat. The latest release features new products derived with the LandMontoring.Earth processing engine and provides new insights into landscape change in Europe derived from the unprecedented data from the Copernicus Sentinel satellites. The products represent the full information content of each Sentinel-2 image ever recorded, with means that as of November 2018 more than 23.605.726.320.000 pixels were processed.
In addition, you can find on the portal the first user-validated Sentinel-2 based land cover map of Austria, developed through the ESA CadasterENV initative. This map is part of the LISA Land Information System Austria and will be updated consecutively. Moreover, data from the Copernicus pan-European Land Monitoring Service such as CORINE Land Cover and the High-Resolution Layers (HRLs) on Imperviousness, Forest, Grassland and Water/Wetness have been added for visualisation purposes.
The LandMontoring.Earth portal also features an ‘Analytics’ section highlighting for all European regions statistics of land cover, phenology and imperviousness. Summary reports for each region can be downloaded under the ‘Reports’ tab.
Stay tuned for future updates!
