EARSC & DG AGRI Workshop - Digital transformation in agriculture: the role of remote sensing

Innovative insurance service for farmers based on satellite data gets commercial follow up in Uganda


Smallholder farmers in Uganda are increasingly vulnerable to risks associated with changing weather patterns. The SUM-Africa project, supported by the G4AW program of Netherlands Space Office (NSO), provides satellite based drought index insurance to protect these smallholders. This week the Ugandan Agro Insurance Consortium (AIC) and the Dutch company EARS) signed a long-term contract to continue the delivery of this service. The AIC provides the insurance and EARS, lead partner in the Sum-Africa project, provides the satellite-based drought index.

NextGEOSS Public Release 1.0 is Live


The EO sector is moving fast but is characterized by a strong fragmentation. From all parts, from the research, the private sector, entities are scattered even if they are involved in the same thematic or market, even if they use the same input data, even they face similar processing capabilities issues. Defragmentation is needed. Such as the eoMALL (https://eomall.eu, currently in beta version) dedicated to the promotion of EO online services, linking Service Providers and customers, NextGEOSS aims to facilitate the access and the processing of data to EO users. This is why EARSC is involved, with 6 other EARSC members (Vito, Terradue, Euroconsult, CLS, Deimos Space, Deimos Imaging) in this H2020 project lead by DEIMOS Elecnor.

DIAS comparison


The DIAS (Data and Information access services) are cloud-based platforms developed to facilitate and standardise the access to Copernicus data and information. The platforms provide access to Sentinel data and to Copernicus operational services; they also host specific applications and tools. EARSC has been working together with the four commercial DIAS in order to publish a comparison table to highlight the main characteristics of the different platforms and make their features and functionalities clearer to users.

The table is intended to be a “work in progress” tool: it will be updated as new features are added to the four DIAS and it will be subject to constant monitoring for the accuracy of information. The following table is a summary of the main features: you can download the technical sheets to have more complete descriptions of the services available on each platform.
