Introduction and Objectives

The CORDS project, led by Spin.Works in collaboration with Airbus Defense and Space, aims at prototyping a framework for integrating geo-referenced data from different domains and data sources, including data streams, in a fashion that they can be used in a single front-end. The following high-level use cases will be considered:
- Integration of different data types: SAR, optical, multi-spectral, atmospheric, point cloud, generic sensor data streams;
- Visualisation of geo-referenced, co-registered streams or archive products;
- Inclusion of at least one real-time data stream;
- Consideration of a distributed architecture where the location of the data sources might be different from where co-registration and visualisation takes place.

Expected Results

- Extensive survey on existing software tools, toolboxes, libraries and processing frameworks for EO data manipulation, analysis and visualisation, from inside and outside the EO Community; it includes an assessment of the maturity of these tools and their suitability for use next to a ground segment with real-time constraints;
- Survey on existing user communities in the field of EO data processing and analysis, considering the widest possible spectrum of application domains and highlighting what are their needs in terms of functionalities;
- Implementation of a harmonised framework supporting the integration of geo-referenced and co-registered data from different domains and data sources, including data streams, with emphasis on data visualisation in a single front-end;
- Demonstration of the effectiveness of the developed processing framework in relevant EO scenarios like the precision agriculture use cases.
