Reinforcing synergies for geospatial and land applications and services within the ISPRS 2016 Special Session on GALILEO and COPERNICUS

More than 70 participants attended the ISPRS special session organized by the European GNSS Agency (GSA), the European Environmental Agency (EEA) and the H2020 project LARA, that took place Wednesday 13th of July 2016 within the framework of the ISPRS 2016 conference in Prague.

The session focused on the need for more synergies of the various stakeholders on geospatial and land applications and services. During the one and a half hours session chaired by Stratos Stylianidis of GeoImaging Ltd and Hans Dufourmont of the European Environment Agency, five presentations took place putting emphasis on the added value of the combination, the synergies and complementarity of geolocation services and earth observation services. The participants had the opportunity to obtain information on promising technologies making use of geospatial data such as augmented reality, discuss the advances in mapping and SAR related applications possible through the EU Galileo and Copernicus open data policy and view success stories from complementarities of the two satellite systems for European citizens.

More information on the GALILEO and COPERNICUS, geospatial and land applications and services special session can be obtained through the ISPRS website.

LARA project periodic review and meeting in Limassol, Cyprus

LARA project partners met in Limassol Cyprus on the 3rd and 4th of March 2016, to conduct their regular meeting which was combined with project evaluation for the first 12 project months. During the first day of the meeting on the 3rd of March the consortium reviewed progress and updated plans to launch the first operational system prototype. Moreover the current version of system (named LARA 0,5) integrating mostly hardware components was also put successfully into test proving a glimpse of the great potential the final system can have.

The second day of the meeting a holistic review of the project’s progress for the first 12 LARA months was made. Mr. Joaquín Reyes Gonzalez, market development technology officer of the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA), had the opportunity to assess the progress of the project and provide useful recommendations on technical and commercial aspects of the LARA system. An outdoor demonstration of LARA 0,5 was held which allowed for a full evaluation of the current functionality of the system and confirmed the successful translation of system requirements, user expectations and architecture into a tangible and operational system.

Follow LARA project and get real time updates on the development of this challenging system.

Elders UP meeting in Utrecht

Elders UP meeting in Utrecht
The project is reaching its first year and the first results were displayed during the Consortium meeting. In particular, following the initial planning, we have ended up to an effective design for the platform that combines convenience and efficacy for the senior adults to deal with, according to the analyses that took place during the last months.

GeoImaging and Agia Marina elderly shelter from Cyprus successfully organized and conducted a survey concerning the needs of Cypriot senior adults and companies. Moreover, GeoImaging prepared the corresponding assessments and evaluations of the various (initial) versions of the mock-ups.
The discussions with the rest of the partners showed that we have set course for a successful output, sticking to the initial Description of Work and maintaining the necessary consistency of actions.

Promoting integrated and sustainable use of Earth Observation data for the environment in the Black sea and Mediterranean regions: Results from the IASON FP7 project.

GeoImaging ltd, partner of IASON FP7 project is happy to announce that the project has successfully concluded its work. GeoImaging Ltd was leading the Dissemination Work Package which gave us the opportunity to get in touch with various stakeholders and users of Earth Observation data especially in the Black sea and the Middle East regions

GeoImaging Ltd coordinating the second LARA meeting in Birmingham, UK

img smallGeoImaging Ltd, coordinated successfully the second LARA project meeting that took place the 21st and 22nd of May 2015 in Birmingham, UK. This milestone meeting confirmed the ending of the architecture design for LARA system and signaled the beginning of the implementation on all basic technological challenges. During the meeting all partners discussed progress on the ongoing deliverables of WP2 that attempts to specify in details the overall system architecture and user requirements. Moreover, the consortium drew a precise implementation chart towards faster integration of the different modules that will lead to an additional prototype named LARA prototype v. 0, 5 well in advance before the official release of LARA v.10.

During the last part of the first day of the meeting, our UK partner – Birmingham City Council (BCC) – organized a workshop with local industry stakeholders who provided in a round table discussion valuable feedback on the possible uses of LARA system and validated the specification documents for the overall architecture. More specifically, stakeholders from British Gas and ITM power answered a set of 70 questions regarding their expectations from the LARA device in terms of desired accuracy, modules, visualization, interoperability and user interface.

Besides coordinating the meeting, GeoImaging Ltd, presented results regarding the in-house customized GIS system that develops within WP3 which will be used exclusively by the LARA system.

Audiovisual services of the European Commission present applications of the DE-MONTES project (Video in German Language)

The necessity for monitoring geo-risk areas such as rock slides or avalanches is growing due to the increasing probability of such events caused by environmental change. Europe is one leader in survey technology. The project DE-MONTES – funded by the EU research framework programme – provides an efficient, highly automated, high-resolution, terrestrial, long range sensing measurement and analysis system which is able to monitor georisk (and related) objects.
GeoImaging Ltd participated in DE-MONTES project as an SME partner and launched the project pilot in Nicosia focusing on the impact of environmental changes on man-made objects.

Second meeting of the Galileo H2020 project LARA - Utilities Infrastructure Management through Galileo and EGNOS

Project LARA that kicked – off February 2015 is organizing the second project meeting 21 & 22 May 2015 in Birmingham, UK. During the meeting in Birmingham a validation workshop will be launched where real end-users from the gas utility company, the electric utility company and the national grid and water public company will be called to validate the LARA usage scenarios under development.

About LARA project: The nine partner international consortium, led by the Cypriot SME GeoImaging Ltd, will develop during the next 24 months a mobile device to assist the utility management professionals on the field. The LARA system will allow utility management companies to know exactly “where is what”, conducting far more accurate interventions regarding maintenance of their own underground infrastructure while keeping intact other neighboring underground grids. Precise intervention will reduce the overall maintenance cost, minimizing at the same time economic and social implications of lengthy surface works.
