“The EEA is a focal point for environmental mapping in Europe,” says Mikael Kamp Sørensen, Managing Director (DHI GRAS). “We are proud to have been selected to support EEA based on our expertise in environmental mapping. With more than 10 years of practical experience, we can contribute with considerable expertise related to processing and analysis of satellite images and other geospatial data.”
The EEA is an agency of the European Union (EU), tasked with the provision of sound, independent and reliable environmental information. EEA undertakes important work related to the European Copernicus programme – previously known as Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES). The GMES/Copernicus (2011-2013) Initial Operations of the land monitoring service (or ‘GIO’ land) prioritise multi-purpose information common to a large user community.
- land cover/land cover change at various scales and periodicities
- biophysical variables for dynamic land monitoring
- improved access to reference data
Rasmus Borgstrøm, Project Manager (DHI GRAS) elaborates on the contract; “Our team is specialised in advanced image processing. We look forward to supporting the EEA with our expertise in handling and analysing satellite imagery as well as other raster datasets throughout the next four years.”
