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.

Data benchmark study for urban flood modelling
Success story
Through a collaboration MoU agreement with the University of Luxembourg (UL), RSS-Hydro is joining forces with the UL Geodesy and Geospatial Engineering research group to develop an open-access scientific benchmark data set that enables scientists and industry to develop and test high-end models for better urban flood predictions.
Date: June 5, 2020
Company: RSS-Hydro
Proposal: There is a shortfall in current remote sensing data provision in relation to the following two challenges that cannot be met with current satellite or airborne imaging survey technologies: (i) Cost-effective capture of fine-scale spatial data describing the current hydrological condition and water resource status of catchments at user-defined time-steps; (ii) Data capture at fine temporal resolution for describing water system dynamics in soil moisture, vegetation, and topography in catchments where there are important downstream effects on water resources (e.g., floods, erosion events or vegetation removal). These challenges apply in particular to small streams and floodplain flow pathways that become hydraulically and geomorphologically very important during flash floods. However, given the small size and stream order of these systems but their high significance nonetheless during rain storms, they require detailed, high-resolution data on topology and geometry, including all built and natural features. We therefore proposed the development of a benchmark data set from a variety of drone-based technologies for high-accuracy mapping of topography and infrastructure in the context of floodplain and drainage geometries. We suggested to do this first in a small agricultural sub-catchment to test data and model capabilities, before establishing benchmarks for data and flood models in a much more complex residential area (depicted in image) that is prone to flash flooding.

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.

Parcel change detection in the Netherlands
Success story
The Dutch paying agency, RVO (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland), is required to maintain the registration of agricultural parcels in the LPIS (Land Parcel Information System). The process of keeping the registration up to date with the actual situation in the field is a challenge, as annually 5 to 10% of the parcel geometries change. An automated change signalling service is required to speed up the process of manually checking aerial imagery for changes in geometry of the parcels.
Company: NEO
Proposal: The service automatically checks satellite imagery time series and delivers a classification of parcels in line with the requirements. Additionally a dataset of 2D geometries of suspected changes, including properties of the change signal such as nature of change (e.g. building, water, vegetation) and date of change is delivered to add further efficiency to the process of updating the geometries of the parcels, in order to comply with LPIS requirements.

Renovatio shows significance of Cultural Heritage on Property values
Success story
South Holland is a province of the Netherlands situated on the North Sea in the west of the Netherland and covers an area of 3,403 km2.
Date: November 28, 2018
Company: Cittamap Bv
Proposal: The province of Zuid Holland had a challenge with 15% of the monument buildings being empty. This causes reduction in property prices and loss of cultural heritage. The renovation charges exceeded 150million, and a strategy was required to choose the correct sites for redevelopment. The data driven strategy proposed a solution to make life easier for the department culture and heritage to reduce the number of empty monuments.
