ECoLaSS is an EU Horizon2020 project to develop several prototypes of new or enhanced Copernicus Land services by making full use of dense time series of SAR and optical Sentinel EO data at a high spatial resolution of 10m. These prototypes shall be suggested for qualifying as candidates for operational integration into the future Copernicus Land Monitoring Service from 2020 onwards. The high resolution layer (HRL) prototypes fall into six main categories: improved imperviousness HRLs, improved forest HRLs, improved grassland HRLs, improved landcover HRLs, novel agriculture HRLs as well as novel time-series indicator HRLs.
The prototypes displayed here are the result of phase 1 of the ECoLaSS project and are currently being refined and prepared for operational processing (project phase 2):
The ECoLaSS Consortium is composed of five companies/institutions: GAF AG (Germany), SIRS (France), JOANNEUM RESEARCH (Austria), Universite Catholiqe De Louvain (Belgium), and the German Aerospace Center - DLR (Germany). This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, under grant agreement no 730008.
