The Open-Earth-Monitor Cyberinfrastructure (OEMC) project aims to build a cyberinfrastructure that is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (F.A.I.R.) by accelerating the uptake of environmental information and creating user communities at European and global levels.
OEMC’s cloud-based open source software is designed to provide data science tools for different European and global projects that have been informed by exhaustive end-user feedback and research.
OEMC will provide operational solutions and decision-making tools in support of initiatives such as European Green Deal, the EU Climate Adaptation Strategy, the European Data Strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
A dedicated committee will provide real world stakeholder input to shape program outputs.
Centralizing hitherto scattered and siloed environmental data in a user-friendly, open access platform to provide an accurate picture of the global environment.
Co-designing platforms and tools with users and testing them through real-world applications.
Over 4 years, 21 partner organizations will be developing the Open-Earth-Monitor cyberinfrastructure consisting of a cloud-based open-source earth observation computing engine and FAIR data portals that integrate existing and novel European and global data.
To translate big environmental data into real-world applications with usable tools, OEMC aims to study early testing use cases from end-users.
Vizzuality is in charge of designing and developing a Generic Visualization Framework to display a series of “Geostories” based on the GIS data being created by the partners.
Vizzuality is contributing to the development of a prototype shaped by consortium partners’ and feedback and data as well as a design-thinking process that will engage target users. The results will serve as a base for the finished Geoportal to be released in 2026.
