- GAF Webportal ermöglicht behördenübergreifende Bereitstellung sehr hochauflösender Satellitendaten über die Servicestelle Fernerkundung am Bundesamt für Kartographie und Geodäsie
- GAF stellt das hochmoderne GAFportal auf der Intergeo 2022 vor: Halle 2, Stand A2.006
GAF has developed and implemented an easy-to-use web-based system to recognise indications of unlicenced artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) in tropical forests - the “ASM Alert” platform. The platform combines free and publicly available satellite data – in particular European Copernicus Sentinel imagery - with a number of other geodata layers and machine-learning for the analysis. The platform then enables the ordering of commercial, very-high-resolution (VHR) satellite imagery for the identified target areas. The implementation project is being conducted by GAF, Germany, together with the partner IES, Netherlands, and is funded by the European Space Agency (ESA). ASM Alert can be accessed at: https://asmalert.gaf.de
GAF AG nommé chef de projet pour le Programme de Modernisation de la Gestion Foncière – PROMOGEF au Sénégal
Un consortium dirigé par GAF AG mettra en œuvre le "Programme de Modernisation de la Gestion Foncière" (PROMOGEF), programme du gouvernement sénégalais et du ministère fédéral allemand de la coopération économique et du développement (BMZ), financé par la banque de développement KfW. Le programme soutient la mise en place d'une gestion des droits fonciers décentralisée, efficace, transparente et responsable, dont la première phase devrait s'achever en 2025.
Le "Programme de Modernisation de la Gestion Foncière" (PROMOGEF) a été lancé avec succès en décembre 2021 pour une durée de quatre ans.
GAF AG appointed project lead for the Land Rights Administration Modernisation Programme - PROMOGEF in Senegal
A consortium under the lead of GAF AG will implement the “Programme de Modernisation de la Gestion Foncière” (PROMOGEF), the Land Rights Administration Modernisation Programme of the Senegalese Government and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), funded via the KfW Development Bank. The programme supports the provision of a decentralised, efficient, transparent and accountable land rights administration, with the first phase scheduled for completion by 2025.
Copernicus Land Monitoring Service: Consortium of GAF, GeoVille and VITO starts HighResolution Layer Vegetated Land Cover Characteristics Project
The European Environment Agency (EEA) recently awarded a contract to a consortium under the lead of GAF with the partners GeoVille and VITO to implement the new High-Resolution Layer (HRL) Vegetated Land Cover Characteristics (VLCC), as part of the pan-European Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS). Its rich product portfolio will ensure both the continuation and evolution of successful precursor HRLs, such as Forest and Grassland, and the establishment of new HRL products focusing on crops and agricultural practises. The implementation of HRL VLCC will happen with funding by the European Union.
GAF, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Neustrelitz and Antrix Corporation have a successful cooperation stretching back 25 years. In 1996, they signed agreements for the purpose of receiving Indian Earth observation data and distributing the data to European customers on an exclusive basis. That was the starting point for 25 years of successful cooperation and the acquisition of millions of scenes so far – and on into the future.
Empowering the new generation of European Land Cover and Land Use information: CLC+ Core to give a further boost to the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service
The next step towards implementing the new ground-breaking standard in Copernicus Land Monitoring has been initiated with the kick-off of the CLC+ Core initiative in December 2020. The Austrian–German consortium has been awarded a 3.1 million euro framework service contract by the European Environment Agency to implement and run the CLC+ Core system over the next four years. Various Copernicus Land Monitoring Service products as well as national land cover and land use datasets will be ingested into a core system, setting the path for the future creation of multiple CLC+ Instances.
The new European standard in Copernicus Land Monitoring for the coming decade: CLC+ Backbone has been kicked off
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.
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.
GAF AG has successfully completed a pilot project for the monitoring of agricultural parcels for the Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry (StMELF), as part of CAP2020.
The Company has developed and validated an automatic monitoring approach for agricultural parcels using satellite data. This aims to ease the burden of on-the-spot-checks for agricultural administrations. Twelve different monitoring scenarios were automatically evaluated, using high resolution open access earth observation data collected by the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 satellite constellation. The potential of very high resolution PLANETSCOPE data for overcoming constraints in monitoring smaller parcels was also investigated in this project.
