Our delegation presented the C-Land mobile application, developed by TERRASIGNA under MYGEOSS initiative of the European Commission for development of innovative apps in the environmental and social domains. C-Land addresses the need for informing citizens and non-expert users on the changes occurring on European level on land cover, at different spatial and temporal scales. Several case studies are included, such as: draining lakes from river floodplain, coastal specific processes, the impact of wind farms on the natural environment, reed fire detection in wetlands, forest extension in Europe on decadal scales and many others. Datasets are coming from open data domains and they are covering different types of processing level, from raw satellite imagery (further processed in-house by TERRASIGNA) to synthesis products offered by various European institutions.
The dynamics of these events are presented in an interactive and user-friendly manner, as to provide maximum level of understanding with minimum effort from user’s point of view.
The application can be use on Android mobile phones and tablets and can be downloaded here
