Task 1: Requirement Analysis:

Question: Which RS-EBVs are key to track changes in biological diversity at all spatial scales including a prioritisation of the selection? What is their utility and satellite observation requirement?

Outcome: Satellite requirement report with focus on three EBVs

Responsible: ITC 

Task 2: Algorithms Trade-off

Question: Identify and develop the best-practice algorithms for the three focus RS-EBVs.


Outcome: algorithms and product specification for the three focus RS-EBVs

Responsible: University of Zurich


Task 3: Algorithms Prototyping:

Question: Implement, test and verify the best-practice algorithms for the three focus RS-EBVs. 

Outcome: Software tools for end-to-end algorithms

Responsible: DLR 

Task 4: Service Analysis

Question: Demonstration of the utility of the RS-EBV products across four use cases including 10 test sites

Outcome: Use Cases Demonstration

Responsible: WCMC
