Three innovation awards for EOMAP

Two new breakthroughs by the German expert for space-based information on water environments have recently received three awards: RastLess, a new cloud computing solution for fast and cost-saving geospatial data analytics and SDB-Online, the WebApp for mapping shallow waters. ­
­­­For the growing Earth observation market, efficient processing of large raster data volumes in various resolutions is key. Therefore, Marcel Siegmann (31), software engineer at EOMAP, was a double winner at the Space Awards in Rome, where the Copernicus Masters 2022 of the European Space Agency (ESA) were celebrated. On December 1st, his cloud computing innovation “RastLess” won the “Regional Prize Bavaria” by AZO and the “Frontier Tech Challenge” by ESA. Supported by Professor Adam Roe of CODE University Berlin and EOMAP’s software team, Siegmann solved two pain points of analysing raster geo-data: “Continuously running servers are one of the most expensive cloud workloads, and low performance in accessing multiple data sources a real pain for users.”­­­
­­­In contrast to existing Data Cube applications, RastLess is a serverless solution for visualising and analysing distributed raster data. It allows to process hundreds or thousands of images simultaneously within seconds and to handle all sorts of projections and resolutions. „EOMAP demonstrated a unique proposition to introduce new ways of EO data processing using serverless architectures. This can result in cutting infrastructure costs and improving Copernicus cloud productivity“, says Anna Burzykowska, Copernicus Innovation Officer of ESA.
