About EvoLand

EvoLand

The Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS), part of the Copernicus programme, provides geographical information on land cover to a broad range of users in the field of environmental terrestrial applications. This includes land use, land cover characteristics and changes, the state of vegetation, and water cycle and earth surface energy variables. It is free to access by any citizen or organisation in the world. The CLMS is being implemented by the European Environment Agency on behalf of the European Commission (DG DEFIS).

Under the Copernicus 2.0 programme (2021-2027), CLMS will continue to provide its core Copernicus information products and services, building time series that enable long term change monitoring. Additionally, harmonisation and further integration of the products across components (local/pan-European/global) is envisaged in the programme as well as a more efficient workflow by further automation, modularity of the software and data products, and the increased use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide real and near real time data processing, to respond to emerging European policy needs.

EvoLand will develop and test methods which are both new and innovative and roll out 11 candidate prototypes in support of the evolution of the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service. It will integrate novel Earth Observation, in-situ data and the latest Machine Learning techniques to continuously monitor the status, dynamics and biomass of the land surface. The project focuses on five key thematic domains: agriculture, forest, water, urban, and general land cover.

Consortium

To deliver the best possible results, EvoLand brings together a unique consortium of European experts in the Earth Observation domain.

Cesbio

Cesbio

The purpose of CESBIO is to contribute to the progress of knowledge on the functioning of continental surfaces and their interactions with climate and humans, relying heavily on satellite data. Satellites constitute one of the few means available to obtain coherent measurements over large areas. Earth Observation offer both the opportunity to monitor the evolution of the planet, at various scales, and fuel the development and implementation of process models.
