Copernicus Access Platform Intermediate Layers Small Scale Demonstrator

  • CANDELA combines data, software, machine learning, big-data analytics on a highly scalable cloud-IT infrastructure
  • CANDELA is a platform that uses Copernicus data and brings together all those who use, create and interpret geodata
  • CANDELA is a middleware platform that allows the EU science community accessing the DIAS-Copernicus data and information access services and take advantage of using geodata
  • What is CANDELA

Main Objectives

Earth Observation data mining for classification and change detection

Deep Learning for Change Detection on time series for optical and radar Earth observation data

Semantic search and indexation on the output of the Earth observation library and non-image data

Data fusion techniques to merge preprocessed data that came from various sources

Reference Scenarios

Partners will design, implement and validate scalable EO data analytics to process large amounts of data.
These algorithms will be implemented on CANDELA platform, which has an access to Copernicus data, and will be applied at regional and national level to use cases such as: urban expansion, forest health and natural disasters (e.g. forest fire, vineyard damages).

Urban Expansion and Agriculture

Assessing the development of urban areas and the corresponding agriculture area loss

Change Detection in Vineyards

Assessing damage level in vineyards caused by natural hazards

Abrupt Natural Disasters

Localizing and estimating the severity of abrupt natural disasters

Forest Health Monitoring

Monitoring of forest health conditions
