SnapEarth Final Conference

17 November 2022

We invite all interested parties to participate in the final conference of the SnapEarth project, which will take place on November 28, 2022.

The Final Conference aims to present the results of the 36 months of the project. The final solutions for all SnapEarth services and the final demo of all services will be presented at this conference. At the Conference, solutions based on artificial intelligence using Earth Observation data as well as a tool for extracting semantic information about land cover from satellite images will be reviewed. In addition, the event aims to bring together all members of the SnapEarth consortium who were involved in the project aiming to present to the end-users of all services who will be invited, and also to potential clients and the EO community, the results of the project.

The final conference is to discuss the results of the project between all participants of the event and to present a roadmap for the future by members of the consortium.

The event is scheduled for a full day in hybrid form (both physically and online).

Register today and participate in this special day with us.

SnapEarth collaborates with projects:

EIFFEL project


EIFFEL will offer the EO-based community the ground-breaking capacity of exploiting existing GEOSS and external datasets and build upon prior knowledge, with minimal new data collection activities. Added-value services interoperable with GEOSS will be designed, using cognitive search and metadata augmentation tools based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), including Natural Language Processing. These tools will leverage advanced cognitive features to extract meaningful information from and enrich GEOSS metadata. Moreover, novel methods (super resolution, data fusion) for augmenting the spatiotemporal resolution of explored EO data will be proposed, in order to address the needs of the diverse EIFFEL Climate Change adaptation and mitigation applications. 

EIFFEL project: 

AI4Copernicus project

Reinforcing the AI on Demand Platform by Advancing Earth Observation Intelligence, Innovation & Adoption

AI4Copernicus is a European H2020 project that aims to bridge Artificial Intelligence (AI) with Earth Observation (EO) world by making the already developed AI on Demand Platform, the digital environment of choice for users of Copernicus data, for researchers and innovators. AI4Copernicus belongs to the ICT49 projects cluster, enriching the AI on Demand Platform. AI4Copernicus through the Open Calls, aims at creating an open, inclusive & sustainable AI-EO innovation cycle and at bridging the gap between AI & data-driven innovation. This is performed by facilitating value-driven co-creation among diverse user-groups & communities, providing economic, social & environmental benefits.


WQeMS project

The overall objective of WQeMS is to provide an open surface Water Quality Emergency Monitoring Service (WQeMS) to the water utilities’ industry leveraging on the Copernicus products and services. Target is the optimization of the use of resources by gaining access to frequently acquired, wide covering and locally accurate water-status information. Citizens will gain a deeper insight and confidence for selected key quality elements of the ‘water we drink’, while enjoying a friendlier environmental footprint from a more intelligent production process.

PONTOS project

Pontos Project Logo

PONTOS aims to enhance transboundary cooperation for large-scale, harmonized environmental monitoring across the countries of the Black Sea region and beyond. The vehicle towards this objective is the exploitation of numerous freely available and incrementally credible Copernicus data and services (e.g. Copernicus Land and Marine Environment Monitoring Services). Intelligent fusion of data and information shall lead to novel services and products for actors operating along the coastal zone.
