A European consortium of 14 companies and research institutions from 11 EEA member countries under the lead of GAF (Germany) has been awarded a 10 million € framework contract for implementing the CLC+ Backbone, the new ground-breaking standard in Copernicus Land Monitoring. This unique product will constitute a key element in monitoring the European Green Deal and strengthen Europe’s position as a global leader in tackling climate change issues.
Chernobyl mapping has been one of GAF's first projects. Now, nearly 34 years after the Chernobyl Disaster new mapping is under way via Copernicus Satellites - We see, Earth Observation is still one of the most powerful tools in science!
Greetings from our GAF Mobile Space. Most of us have safely landed there. We grabbed our gear, switched on our communication devices and beamed at the first sight of another GAF-human on our screens.
Yes, „we are fully operational“.
Completely independent from any company-dock-in, we manage daily to deal with familiar data- and Earth Observation challenges.Entry into our GAF Logbook:
„We find it exciting to see how new conditions change our everyday work. For the moment and to this extent they are of course limited to the duration of this emergency situation.
But they certainly provide an excellent basis for further modernization and flexibilization of our work environment for the time thereafter. We take this positive approach together“
Despite the serious health crisis caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, from the onset of the emergency Telespazio guarantees the operation of its space centres in Italy and in all the countries where it is present with its subsidiaries.
ESA, the European Space Agency, has added the Euro-Maps 3D DSM (digital surface model) product with 5 m post spacing to the Copernicus Data Access Portfolio (DAP) (see latest DAP document, Annex 6), thus making it available to Copernicus Services, Union Institutions and Union Research Projects through the Copernicus Data Warehouse (DWH). Euro-Maps 3D DSM provides a homogeneous quality, particularly suitable for large-scale, trans-national applications such as hydrologic modelling, infrastructure, network planning, risk mapping and the exploration of natural resources.
After a successful multi-stereo new acquisition over Lisbon by European Space Imaging, GAF generated within a very short time a fully textured digital surface model with exceptional 30 cm resolution.
As a prompt delivery of elevation models based on highly current VHR satellite images is crucial for high-profile customers and their specific applications - Multi-Stereo VHR DSM meets the challenge: This high-quality product provides standardized, accurate and reliable 3D information that can be made available for any place in the world within a very short time.
Currently already more than 200 cities worldwide are available as either 30 cm or 50 cm digital surface models.

The ESA EO4SD Urban Project lead by GAF AG and implemented with a Consortium of European Service Providers has organized with the World Bank a final Workshop in Washington DC from 21-22 January 2020 with the objective to review the achievements of the project, and use the lessons learned to forge a way forward with the Bank to ensure a sustainability to the co-operation.
The Director for the Global Practice on Urban, Disaster Risk Management, Resilience & Land (GPURL) – Dr. S. Wahba will open the Workshop and several of the Bank Experts will provide feedback on the utility of the EO4SD Urban geo-spatial data for their urban development programmes. This high-level event is evidence of the strong relations that have been developed between the Bank, the European SPs and ESA in the past 3.5 years, which is envisaged to continue in the years ahead.”
