Methods and tools for dual access to the EO databases in the EU and Russia

Objective

The market of EO services is rapidly growing and becoming one of the main driving forces of innovative development both in Europe and Russia. At the same time, still the exchange of EO data available in both regions is a technical challenge. The consortium composed of the developers of an only Russian civil EO satellite system Resurs-DK and representatives of European EO research community and EO service industry aims at reducing technical barriers for the joint use of EO data available both in the EU and Russia. In particularly, the project will (1) structure and make publically available internal data format used in the Resurs satellite system, (2) develop mathematical methods for data conversion and several software toolboxes enabling independent EO service providers and GIS developers to access to and use both European and Russian EO datasets from a single application, (3) develop the web interface for the collections of the Resurs satellite data, thus enabling access to and efficient search for EO images. The major technical outcomes will be tested and evaluated by integration into the real European and Russian applications and their validation in the context of provisioning real services to potential final users. The consortium will also undertake steps to make the project results available to the prime dissemination audience - SMEs working in the field of EO services and/or GIS software development.
