R&D and demonstration projects

Two projects are funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) to demonstrate the value of EO based information products in the emerging sector of ecosystem services and extend their use for multiple applications:

Small Linear Features - Development of EO derived information services for EEA

Small linear landscape features (SLF) play a crucial role in landscape functioning. Vegetation linear features serve as natural habitats or biocorridors (green infrastructure) in intensively used open landscapes. Secondly, they provide important provisioning (genetic, wood), regulating (climate, soil erosion protection, water purification) and cultural (landscape character) ecosystem services.
