Evolution of the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service

EvoLand will develop eleven new product candidates for Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS), through innovative approaches in data fusion, continuous monitoring, AI and biomass mapping, as well as through the integration of novel EO and in-situ data.

Methods

EvoLand will develop new methods to transform traditional land cover maps (status and change at multi-year intervals) towards continuous monitoring of land cover dynamics. These methods include change detection techniques on surface reflectance/backscatter time series, as well as continuous mapping of land surface characteristics.
