The project is structured into 5 tasks spanning across Phases 1 and 2 and a total duration of 28 month. 


Task 0: Management and coordination of activites

Responsible: UZH

Phase 1 (T0 to T0+14m)

Task 1: Requirement Analysis:

Question: Which RS-enabled 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-enabled EBVs.


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

Responsible: UZH


Phase 2 (T0+14 to T0+28m)

Task 3: Algorithms Prototyping:

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

Outcome: Software tools for end-to-end algorithms

Responsible: DLR 

Task 4: Service Analysis

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

Outcome: Use Cases Demonstration

Responsible: WCMC
