Open-Earth-Monitor
Cyberinfrastructure

We are building a decentralized open-source digital ecosystem to accelerate access and use of
environmental data across borders
OPEN-EARTH-MONITOR PROJECT

Bottom-up
data governance

Field data and satellite-based EO in the hands of the people: OEMC will build upon existing open-source software and platforms to develop seamless environmental monitoring app solutions.

DATA FOR INFORMED DECISION-MAKING

Supporting EU policies
and global initiatives

OEMC will include a suite of operational tools to directly support the objectives of the European Green Deal, the EU Climate Adaptation Strategy, the European Data Strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

1.Working with stakeholders

The gaps and needs of stakeholders will be central to the design process of all OEMC tools. A stakeholder committee will be established and consulted via workshops and surveys.

EU agencies
and programmes

Serving usable environmental information that will help achieve EU sustainability goals and circular economy.

Research organizations
and international cooperation

Monitoring trends to tackle the challenges posed by climate change, biodiversity loss and land degradation.

Service providers

Integrating and supporting European open digital infrastructure to promote data uptake and business development.

User communities

Empowering both experts and stakeholders to enact real-world change with environmental data.

2. Building the cyberinfrastructure

We will build a future-proof data suite by harmonizing field samples, EO technologies and existing data portals. User-friendly monitoring tools based on gaps & needs will enable a diversity of users to search and use environmental information in the office and in the field.

3. Testing with use cases

OEMC monitoring platforms and their tools will be co-designed with users and tested with real-world applications, ensuring their relevance to help solve issues at any scale — be it regional, national, or global.
