Burned Area Mapping and Impact Assessment of Wildfires in Rural and Agropastoral Areas of Crete

This project focused on two burned areas in Crete performing pre and post-fire assessment using commercial Earth Observation data, Machine Learning algorithms, and auxiliary information (vector data) from the Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS) to quantify the impacts on cultivations and natural vegetation.

Identifying the Conservation Status of Selected Coastal Terrestrial Natura 2000 Habitats of Greece

This project aims at exploiting Copernicus Sentinel-2 data for calculating spectral heterogeneity as a surrogate indicator on the conservation status of selected Natura 2000 habitats of Greece, which have been defined by vectorial data and used to develop the relevant method due to absence of suitable field data. The project is funded the Green Fund Financing Program "NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND INNOVATIVE ACTIONS 2020".

Generating Earth Observation Terrain Motion Measurements

This project focused on generating Earth Observation (EO) terrain motion measurements via operational Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) services of the Geohazards Exploitation Platform (GEP), in support of disaster risk reduction and decision-making. Capacity building activities were provided to train EO practitioners on the utilization of cloud-based EO solutions.

Burned Area Mapping in Agricultural Area of East Crete

This project aimed at creating a burned area map, using Planet CubeSats as the only daily available source, for associating the burned area with the distribution network of electricity and the locations of the piles towards examining the fire cause and especially the potential causation of the local electricity network.
