Open Earth Monitor Cyberinfrastructure.

Building a decentralized digital open source ecosystem to expand data access beyond borders.

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.

Shifting focus from existing earth observation technology approaches towards end-users.

Open Earth Monitor Cyberinfrastructure.

Accelerating the uptake of open environmental information and building resilient user communities.

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.

Stakeholder engagement.

A dedicated committee will provide real world stakeholder input to shape program outputs.

Building cyberinfrastructure 

Centralizing hitherto  scattered and siloed environmental data in a user-friendly, open access platform to provide an accurate picture of the global environment.

Human-centered design. 

Co-designing platforms and tools with users and testing them through real-world applications.

Developing the Open Earth Monitor Cyberinfrastructure.

The brief.

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.

Our role.

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.

Delivered with impact.

Contributing to a new cyber-ecosystem’s foundation.

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.

Transition Pathway Initiative.

Transitioning to a low-carbon economy.
