Look what you can find now!

Forestry TEP is now empowered by the enhanced data catalogue of EO Cloud, enabling you to utilize the complete and continuosly updating Sentinel-2 data globally, as well as the full data from the Sentinel-3 mission. With regard to the Sentinel-1 radar mission, full GRD level data is available as well, complemented by SLC level data for Europe and surrounding areas.

To guarantee efficiency - and obviously in line with the TEP concept in general - our processing environment is now also hosted by the capable infrastructure of EO Cloud.

Recent F-TEP articles

Over the last few months a couple of recent articles on F-TEP have been published:

An article in EOMag, the magazine from the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC). This article, titled 'Building a forestry processing platform ready for the Copernicus age', can be found here

Another article has been published on the ESA portal. This article, titled 'Space Helps Forests Regenerate', can be found here

Over the next few months other articles will be published that describe ongoing activities within F-TEP.

Satellites map carbon sequestered by forests, with accuracy of up to ten metres

Led by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, the EU North State project has developed a new method of using satellite images to evaluate the forest carbon balance. The carbon balance indicates how much carbon is sequestered or released by forests each year. This enables the carbon balance to be displayed on digital maps, with an accuracy of up to ten metres.

Building a forestry processing platform ready for the Copernicus age

The first iteration of the Forestry Thematic Exploitation Platform (F-TEP) will be released to champion users in the coming months. F-TEP is being created to provide an online data processing and dissemination resource for the forestry community that is ready to utilize the volume shift in data in the Copernicus age.

With the very large volumes of data now being provided from the multiple Sentinel missions and other satellites, the limitations for effective science and value adding business are becoming less about lack of data, but more about using effective tools and resources to find, process and analyse such data. Such large data volumes mean that longer time to download, larger storage devices, advanced processors and high powered computing are all needed.
