A physicist who specializes in spatial information and programming, Joan Masó has actively contributed to milestones such as the development of the MiraMon digital mapping software and the creation of the Web Map Tile Service standard. His work could be defined as using open data to create opportunities.
According to an article by CREAF researchers Benjamin Stocker and Josep Peñuelas published in Nature Geoscience, drought impact studies based on satellite data do not factor in the effects of soil moisture.
Ivette Serral has a degree in Environmental Sciences from the UAB and has been working as a technician in remote sensing and GIS at CREAF since 2002. She is currently a member of the GRUMETS research group and participates in the ConnectinGEO and Ecopotential projects. The diversity of her day to day work is stimulating, though it also makes it hard to put her mind to analysis of data and results.
A new Earth Observation satellite with 10 meter resolution able to see elements that were not visible in equivalent satellites of the same kind. In moving elements, the information of the three pixels that form the three channels that form color images (red, green and blue) are seen separated and objects become visible even if are smaller than a single pixel. This could allow for opening new Research lines in the field of mobility and road transport.
In conjunction with the meeting of the OGC Technical Committee in Barcelona from 9 to 13 March, an OGC Interoperability Day was held on Friday 13 March 2015, at Institut Cartogràfic i Geologic de Catalunya (ICGC). This event was organized by the Iberian and Latin-American Forum of the OGC (ILAF) and the Associació Catalana de Tecnologies de la Informació Geospacial (ACTIG) and sponsored by ICGC and CREAF.
The European project WaterInnEU began at the end of March with a kick-off meeting at the Casa Convalescència (Barcelona) with the presence of the eight project members and representatives of the European Commission.
This week saw the first meeting of the ConnectinGEO project, a new European Horizon2020 project coordinated by CREAF that has the objective of coordinating and promoting the use of Earth observation data in Europe. Earth observation data are used for determining the health of the planet from space, using remote sensing technology such as sensors and cameras on planes, satellites, and other airships
This leaflet presents the final achievements of the GeoViQua (QUAlity aware VIsualisation for the Global Earth Observation system of systems) project described in terms of two demonstration scenarios. The scenario 1 is related to agriculture flooding practices control, and the scenario 2 talks about the Global Carbon Atlas.
Head of GRUMETS (CREAF-UAB) research group take up the challenge of directing the scientific publication GeoFocus, the most important in the world in spanish language dedicated to geographic information science and its various applications.
CREAF has presented the final report of the European project GeoViQua, a project that will transform the global platform GEOSS in order to let users improve environmental data that provide organizations like NASA or FAO. Now users can also check the quality of environmental data. A specialized search engine and a color-coded label will help people to choose the most reliable data from all available..
Researchers at the CREAF are working on a study of land cover and land use for the Iberian Peninsula31 de July 2013Anna Ramon Revilla
The DINACLIVE project aims to analyze how land cover and land uses have changed throughout the Iberian Peninsula. With the extracted information, they will be able to observe the impacts of climate change and other factors, such as the effects of the drought on vegetation.
The information captured by Landsat-8 will be published and will serve to advance the research, study and management of our planet, in particular, in the pursuance of agriculture, forest, water consumption or energy management.
More than 175 experts in earth observation from all over the world have gathered at the VII Geo European Projects Workshop, organized by the European Commission and the CREAF, celebrated on the 15th and 16th of April at the “Casa de la Convalascència” of the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
