Partner in ESA project „EO-li“

MapTailor is partner of the project EO-li (Earth Observation based location identifier platform). The project lead is with mundialis GmbH & Co. KG in Bonn, Germany.

EO-li – supported by the European Space Agency (ESA) – is a service platform which tackles the question of restoration in its large sens and its positive spin offs related to the issue of food security (SDG-2), creating sustainable jobs (SDG-8), Land Degradation Neutrality (SDG-15), empowering communities in technologies (SDG-17) and accelerating other conventions on climate change (e.g REDD+) among others. The EO-li platform is accessible through the Internet, empowered by Geo web-mapping and remote sensing technologies. The Service Platform will be built using Open Source Software and sustainable fair business case.

MapTailor add to the project with long-year experience in the field of biomass monitoring and land use – land cover mapping, using Sentinel-1 and 2 data.

The vision of the Eo-li platform is to offer “transparency”, “traceability” and “flexibility” on the various aspects of forest and landscapes restoration including the process of it’s implementation. To enable this vision in concrete, the implementation of a restoration project will be by using a system of four service components: (1) by identifying the areas to restore, (2) by connecting the different stake-holders via a market place, (3) by monitoring the progress of the implemented restoration projects and (4) by raising awareness, strengthening capacities and technology transfer.

All geographically connected, allowing transparency on the different aspects of a restoration project and facilitating the traceability, the platform will help the reporting process on the various conventions and foster the release of the quantitative and qualitative incentives (Carbon offsets, certification of products, product value, credits, environmental services, etc…).
