Space & Security

Earth observation data for the Space and security domain are currently showing an unprecedented scenario in terms of variety, volume, velocity, veracity and value.

Smart Cities

Purpose of this task is to promote the use of Earth observations in Smart Cities and to bring Smart City sensor reading into GEOSS (mostly in-situ), so that they can be used in combination with other data sets to make derived products, validate, calibrate or qualify other sources of data or build a rapid evaluation assessment of the situation in case of crisis situations.

Territorial Planning

This pilot aims to design an intuitive web based interface that allows users to train, classify and analyse satellite based LULC and LULC change maps.

Food Security

The overall objective of this pilot activity is to demonstrate how NextGEOSS faciliates the use and processing of Sentinel-2 data for crop monitoring.


The biodiversity community still lacks a global observing system for biodiversity monitoring. Therefore there is an urgent need from the remote sensing community to feed information towards Essential Biodiversity Variables to fill the spatial and temporal gaps in between in-situ biodiversity observation data from the field.

Cold Regions

This pilot has a focus on showcasing examples of products for selected areas in Cold Regions, combining remote sensing data, in situ data and model products from relevant European infrastructures and international frameworks.

Disaster Risk Reduction

Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) pilot aims to provide an enhanced landslide risk assessment framework based on the statistical analysis of long time series of satellite and geospatial data accessible through the NextGEOSS Data Hub.
