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 [...]

The WASDI application is fully operational

The ESB Global Mapping application, developed on ONDA

The Earth Starts Beating Global Mapping application has been developed on the ONDA platform and is available from our Marketplace.
It provides the interactive visualization of global time series of Sentinel-3 data about the variation on the ground of geophysical quantities linked to the health of our Planet – e.g. the chlorophyll content in vegetation, the amount of water vapour, etc.
Check on ESB the full list of the available land maps.
The global mosaics (Level 3) are generated by processing the [...]
