The eStation, Earth observation processing server

The JRC recently presented the new developments of its eStation, a processing server for the environmental monitoring of land condition in Africa.

Developed by the JRC, the eStation is a system designed to automatically deal with the reception, processing, analysis and dissemination of key environmental parameters derived from remotely sensed data. Initially created as a stand-alone system – not connected to the internet – using an open source tool, the eStation has recently been further developed as a web processing service to allow a broader range of end-users, mainly policy-makers and governmental agencies, to access the data and services over the internet.

The eStation has been successfully deployed in 47 sub-Saharan countries in the context of the African Monitoring of Environment for Sustainable Development (AMESD) project.
