Data in Use
MERIS, MODIS, RapidEye, SPOT, SENTINEL 2, SENTINEL 3
The main objective of the idea is to provide near real-time, high-resolution water quality products to both private users (scuba divers, seaside tourists, etc.) via mobile phones and professional offshore companies. Very fast user- and service-friendly access to the products will be facilitated by the use of cloud computing solutions and/or processor installations directly on top of GMES ground segments and satellite data archives.
Up-to-date water quality information such as turbidity and algae pressures are of relevance for seaside tourists, divers, fisheries, and offshore companies.
«Through more frequent data updates and integration of multiple satellite sensors, higher spatial resolution, and cloud computing facilities, this cost-effective mass-market solution offers more accurate data than current services.»
