GIS tool for urban areas to simulate variability in space and in time the electric energy load and the yield productions of rooftop PV systems to assess for planning phase
Company: Armines
Proposal: There is a need, in urban area, for GIS-like tool for grid operators, urban planning decision makers, industries, aggregators for solar energy trading, citizen (PV self-consumption) and researchers. This GIS-tool is meant to provide an urban energy system modelling of distribution grids to plan, monitor and nowcast (i.e. and short term forecast) the spatiotemporal variability of the electric consumption on one hand and of the production of fleet of PV rooftop systems on the other hand.

Rheticus® AquaculturePlus
Success story
Aquafarmers faces new challenges due to the impact of extreme events mostly related to climate change, leading to changes in the sea temperature and phytoplankton, affecting growth rates and mortality of shellfishes and, therefore, the productivity of farms and the quality of products. As a consequence, aquafarmers can’t rely totally on well-known and established farming practices.

Proactive Pipeline Maintenance With Rheticus® Network Alert
Success story
Like many utility companies that manage water and sewage infrastructure, Hera constantly monitors subtle ground movement on its 3,852 miles of pipeline. Subsidence “doesn’t need to be dramatic to be destructive and costly,” said a Hera spokesperson. “Ground motion of even a few centimeters around buried pipelines can cause leaks in the pipes, and not just water and sewer pipes — gas, electricity, and telecommunications can all be affected. These leaks can then accelerate the erosion around the critical area, damaging service and possibly creating larger problems.”
Company: Planetek Italia s.r.l.
Proposal: Planetek Italia is an Italian company, established in 1994, which employs 50 men and women, passionate and skilled in Geoinformatics, Space solutions, and Earth science. We provide solutions to exploit the value of geospatial data through all phases of data life cycle from acquisition, storage, management up to analysis and sharing. We operate in many application areas ranging from environmental and land monitoring to open-government and smart cities, and including defence and security, as well as Space exploration and satellite missions. The main activity areas are: Satellite, aerial and drone data processing for cartography and geo-information production; Continuous monitoring with satellite data of Earth’s surface, infrastructures, work sites, urban dynamics or marine coastal areas in support of decision-making and operational activities Design and development of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) for geospatial data archive, management and sharing; Design and development of real-time geo-location based solutions, through positioning systems such as GPS/Galileo/GNSS and indoor location systems; Development of software for the satellite on-board data and image processing and for ground segment infrastructures.

Firemaps.net supports management of UNESCO World heritage Site in West African Savanna
Success story
The UNESCO World heritage Site Comome National Park in Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa, is affected by large scale fires every year.
Date: January 15, 2016
Company: Zebris Gbr
Proposal: To provide park managers with more insight into the fire dynamics of this large park and two adjacent agropastoral areas, ZEBRIS proposed the use of the platform firemaps..net to provide frequent and timely updates of burned areas and near real time monitoring of fires. To assess greenhouse gas emissions, measuring biomass burning and smoke release rates with infrared satellites was proposed. Fire risk and vulnerability were to be analysed using satellite data of past fire events, land cover information, weather data and fire behaviour models. Analysis and reporting-ready statistics were to be done largely automated in the processing environment provided by firemaps.net and served through a web GIS interface or as downloadable raster and vector data.

Monitoring trees for nature conservation law
Success story
NEO is monitoring whether trees are disappearing in areas that fall under the Nature Conservation Law, using satellite data and deep learning methodologies.
Date: December 24, 2019
Company: NEO
Proposal: On behalf of several provinces NEO has monitored whether trees disappeared in areas that fall under the nature conservation law. The enforcement of this law is difficult, as areas are enormous and human resources limited. By monitoring the trees in an automated way NEO delivers only the most relevant changes to the client to follow up in the field. The nationwide tree database of the Boomregister that was developed by NEO is used as baseline. Satellite data is used as source for the yearly updates. We use deep learning algorithms to signal where trees have disappeared, and filter them to only keep the most relevant ones.
