LandSense Engagement Platform Hackathon

Last week LandSense partners Secure Dimension, SINERGISE, IIASA, Helyx and GeoVille met for a 4-day Hackathon to advance the LandSense Engagement Platform (LEP).

The LEP is an integral component and public interface of the LandSense Citizen Observatory. It is a service platform, targeting a broad range of stakeholder and is comprised of highly marketable EO-based solutions that contribute to the transfer, assessment, valuation, uptake and exploitation of Land Use/Land Cover (LULC) data.

The LEP will offer collaborative mapping functionalities that allow citizens to view, analyze and share data collected from different campaigns and create their own maps, individually and collaboratively. In addition, citizens can participate in ongoing LandSense demonstration cases using their own devices (e.g. mobile phones and tablets), through interactive reporting and gaming applications, and by launching their own campaigns.

This interaction is achieved by bringing together and extending various key pieces of technology, including: Geo-Wiki, LACO-Wiki, Geopedia, Sentinel Hub, and the Earth Observation Data Centre.

The LEP will be online shortly; stay tuned for the launch!
