EOMAP has licensed the first entity of its latest development on software for web-based processing of satellite-derived water quality parameters to Brazilian company Lactec earlier in February. eoLytics is a cloud-based processing system for quality assessment of inland and coastal waterbodies using satellite data. It is accessible through any internet browser.
Users with an activated account and a valid licence are able to run water quality analysis on their own using EOMAP’s proven, physics-based Modular Inversion and Processing System (MIP). This sensor-independent approach includes all the relevant processing steps to guarantee a robust, standardised and operational retrieval of water quality parameters from various satellite data sources. The advantage of physics-based methods is that they do not require a priori information about the study area and can therefore be applied independently of satellite type and study area.
A team of EOMAP experts travelled to Brazil for a one week training and capacity building event for the staff involved at Lactec. The employees are now able to calculate the full range of EOMAP’s satellite-derived water quality parameters for the entire country of Brazil using data from Landsat 8, Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 satellites. The featured images shows the training participants together with EOMAP’s representatives Dr. Knut Hartmann and Hendrik Bernert.
