Geo-harmonizer project mission

The Geo-harmonizer project aims at reducing problems of harmonizing national data with using seamless modeling techniques over the entire extent of the EU, and "opening data" i.e. making the data easier to access

The Copernicus land data products and similar data products funded by European Commission play a central role in the reference data framework that determines the quality and traceability of all Copernicus products and services. But many of these layers suffer from limited reproducibility and completeness. By building and implementing Geo-harmonizer we will contribute to the Copernicus product in producing new added-value products. For example, we use automated mapping methods to produce annual land cover maps at 30-m resolution for the complete period 2000–2020, the “OpenStreetMap+” (we merge OpenStreetMap data with other EO products) and a number of other value-added layers. We aim at producing analysis and/or decision ready layers that can be used directly by end-users.


Building Open Data Science Europe

We are building a data portal called "Open Data Science Europe" which contains gridded layers for Europe at spatial resolutions of 30-m or better, and which were produced using FOSS4G software solutions, Machine Learning and Open Earth Observation data

The Open Data Science Europe data portal / viewer aims at serving decision-ready layers such land cover, air quality and pollution, potential natural vegetation and similar. To calculate these value-added decision-ready maps, we use topographic data (DEMs), Earth observation (EO) data, hydrological and meteorological data that we map using automated mapping systems largely based on spatiotemporal Machine Learning algorithms available in the Open Source software. We then serve the data using Cloud-Optimized GeoTIFFs to allow for seamless and unrestricted access. We aim at documenting all processing steps through gitlab.com up to the level of full-reproducibility.


Open Data Science Europe Workshop 2021

The Open Data Science Workshop 2021 was held in Wageningen from September 6 to September 10, 2021. This 5-day hybrid event organized by the GeoHarmonizer consortium provided 2 days of training in processing data cubes and using machine learning to extract content, and 3 days of conference talks and discussion panels.

The special theme of the workshop 2021 was:
“Spatiotemporal modeling of European Landscapes and Climate 2000–2020: using EO and Machine Learning”

The event was sponsored by the OpenGeoHub foundation: no participation fees was charged.
