The use of airborne and satellite earth observation systems is spreading and plays an increasingly significant role in identifying environmental problems. The acquisition of large volumes of image data by several sensors at different scales requires the development of specialized tools for analysis and interpretation.
The project will develop a platform for the processing of multi and hyperspectral images and speed the adoption of remote sensing technologies by various agencies, the industries and the political decision makers of the Atlantic Area.
This platform will promote advanced methods from new information and communication sciences and technologies. All the tools necessary to meet the requirements of monitoring, management, forecasting, expertise and decision-making related to the environment will be integrated in the platform.
