New applications by our Third Party Users now accessible

Two new applications developed on the ONDA platform are now accessible on our Marketplace:

Sentinel Vision is a platform designed by VisioTerra to produce “Sentinel stories” that use near real-time & archive Sentinel data and are regularly published in a thematic gallery.

The ESA Sentinel-3 World Fires Atlas Prototype product, developed by the European Space Agency over the southern countries of the ESA member states, uses both Fire channels of the Sentinel-3 SLSTR sensors.

Harris application on our Marketplace

New addition to the ONDA Marketplace: the Harris Geospatial Solutions application on Demystifying SAR data processing is now available from our Marketplace.
The application serves as an example to show how connecting the ONDA platform to the Harris analytics enables the creation of complex processing chains to extract meaningful information and maps.
This information can then inform domain specific decision making or can be further exploited in subsequent processing chains.
A video tutorial is also available, showing in detail the application usage.

I.MODI on ONDA Marketplace

A link to the I.MODI (Implemented MOnitoring system for structural DIsplacement) project is now available on the ONDA Marketplace, the section of our web portal where users are able to advertise their own services developed on the ONDA platform.
I.MODI provides Earth observation services for building damage assessment analyses, making use of SAR data archives for back analysis in combination with in-situ data.
The project has been developed on ONDA by Survey Lab, a spinoff of Sapienza University of Rome, who in [...]

Sentinel-3 World Fires Atlas Prototype on ONDA

The Sentinel-3 World Fires Atlas Prototype product has been developed by the European Space Agency to provide continuity to the ESA ATSR World Fire Atlas, which produced monthly global fire maps from 1995 to 2012 using the Along Track Scanning Radiometers on-board ERS-2 and then ENVISAT.
The new prototype uses Sentinel-3 SLSTR data, which are processed with the ESA SNAP and GDAL tools on the ONDA platform.
The S3 World Fires Atlas will also soon be available on our ONDA Marketplace.

A case study: the FAROS project on ONDA

IPTSAT and Lazio Connect (a Copernicus Relay contributing to spreading awareness and knowledge about Copernicus across and outside the EU) had a first opportunity to test the ONDA Virtual Servers during the Copernicus Hackathon focused on Sustainable Development Goals which took place in Villorba, Italy, on 5-7 October 2018.
IPTSAT then had a further chance to assess the ONDA platform in the frame of our Free Trial Access programme.
They therefore decided to transfer their application permanently on the ONDA Virtual [...]
