EARSC (Virtual) EOcafe: ESA's new Global Development Assistance (GDA) program


ESA began exploring the potential of Satellite Earth Observation (EO) in the context of Development Aid/Assistance activities during 2010-15. Since then it has been collaborating closely with the International Financial Institutes on the use of EO (covering the timeframe 2016-2020) on larger-scale activities. The next phase is the ‘Mainstream &Transfer’ of EO into development. The Global Development Assistance – GDA, ESA’s new programme, will be implemented in a joint, coordinated initiative (“Space in support of International Development Assistance”), with the World Bank (WB) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB), from 2020-2024 at an initial level of 30 M€.

Datacubes meet AI: A Game Change for Crop Mapping and Land Cover


A new era of land cover and crop mapping has begun with Coramaps GmbH ​https://www.coramaps.com/, a spinoff company located in Darmstadt. Coramaps allows access to near real-time information for very large areas on land cover by using satellite radar data. This fully computer-based analysis and interpretation works on the basis of an AI-based algorithm in combination with rasdaman as a database.
