GEO – Group on Earth Observations

coordinates efforts to build a Global Earth Observation System of Systems, or GEOSS.

CEOS – Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS)

coordinates civil space-borne observations of the Earth

viewed as a satellite “arm” of GEOSS

CEOS WGISS

  • WGISS – CEOS Working Group on Information Systems and Services

    • promotes collaboration in the development of systems and services that manage and supply EO data to users world-wide

  • Technology Subgroup

    • Chair: Prof. Natalia Kussul, Ukraine

  • Grid Interest Group (IG)

    • Lead: Prof. Andrii Shelestov, Ukraine


Grid ig

Grid IG

  • Wide Area Grid

    • collaborative effort of space agencies to share data-processing resources

  • Testbed

    • disaster-related applications, particularly floods

    • GEO 2009-2011 Task # (DI-06-09):Use of Satellites for Risk Management

    • End-users

      • UN-SPIDER - United Nations Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response


Rapid flood mapping from sar satellite imagery in grids

Rapid flood mapping from SAR satellite imagery in Grids

  • Delivered within 24 h after data acquisition

  • Satellite synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) instruments

    • ERS-2/SAR

    • ENVISAT/ASAR

    • RADARSAT-1/2

  • Ground validation

    • Chinese territory on riverHuaihe 2008 => 95% matchof satellite observationsagainst field measurements

  • Output format

    • OGC-compatible: WMS, WCS, KML etc
