The 4S project

4S project key visual - satellite flying above the Earth

4S stands for “Satellite Seafloor Software Suite” and was a Horizon Europe project lead by EOMAP. From 2019 to 2022, it involved renowned partners. Key target of the 4S project was the development a cloud-based software solution empowering its users to map and monitor seafloor and water depth from the comfort of their desks.

Throughout the 4S project, the partners optimized usability and validity of the software suite in 20 use cases.

The project partners’ claim reads as follows: “We believe that modern satellite capabilities and aquatic Earth Observation (EO) analysis can be brought to a level which significantly improves the state of the art of data gathering of shallow water morphology, habitats and its trends over time.”
