RESEARCH project aims at the creation of a Thematic Platform including back-end and front-end (Web Portal) and external interfaces. The platform will manage the results of EO processing chains related to soil erosion, land movement and land use change, demonstration data and archaeological data, aiming at the functionality of data fusion and feature extraction products, such as risk and warning maps.
A specific work package is devoted to the design, development and test of the RESEARCH thematic platform and integration of archaeological data with outputs of the external data processing chains.
Software analysis, design, development, verification and deployment provide justification for secondment.
Land movement, also mass movement or mass wasting, indicates the downslope movement surface materials, such as soil, rock, or mud.
Soil erosion is a natural phenomenon of soil loss manly due to water runoff and wind.
Coastal erosion, agricultural activities, urban sprawl, uncontrolled vegetation growth are only some of the factors provoking land use change.
