EOS Data Analytics Participation In Horizon Europe: Paving A Path To Sustainability Together

On a mission to harness space technology for sustainable development, EOS Data Analytics has joined the EU's Horizon project. The science team has brought its expertise to the GoldenEye program focused on enabling responsible mining, and we are eager to take on more projects promoting sustainable practices.

EOS Data Analytics has joined the Horizon 2022 project

Horizon 2020

EOS Data Analytics joined the consortium for one of the green economy projects within the Horizon 2020 funding program, a major EU initiative promoting research and innovation.

Horizon 2020 aims to strengthen Europe's innovative potential by focusing on excellent science, industrial leadership, and addressing societal challenges. The goal is to create conditions for science to thrive and promote collaboration of public and private sectors to deliver globally competitive innovations.

Sustainable decision-making with satellite-derived data

GoldenEye – Horizon 2020 Funded Project

EOS Data Analytics joined GoldenEye, one of the Horizon 2020 research projects focused on the mining industry. It aims to:

  • Develop new sensing technologies and data integration
  • Obtain new data of the trial mine sites
  • Create an analytics platform to integrate new and existing data of the trial mine sites
  • Provide a cloud solution for the mining customers and authorities to access information of the mining sites
Satellite, areal, and ground data processing

EOSDA's Input Into The Horizon 2020 Project GoldenEye

Drawing on vast scientific and analytical expertise, EOS Ukraine, a subsidiary of EOS Data Analytics, has developed an algorithm for land surface temperature downscaling from Landsat-8 to a finer spatial resolution of Sentinel-2 data. The advantage of the underlying ElasticNet regression method is the minimal dependence on land surface classes. As a result, GoldenEye maps of surface temperatures reveal fine details that cannot be seen in the original satellite images.

The tasks of EOSDA science team in the project scope were to:

estimate the slope stability
allocate areas of ongoing extraction
analyze humidity and surface temperatures
assess vegetation state in adjacent territories
evaluate the changes in water surface area in tailings

Current Project Status

EOS Data Analytics developed an algorithm based on ElasticNet regression to downscale Landsat-8 land surface temperature to finer Sentinel-2 image resolution. As a result, a higher degree of detail was achieved in temperature maps compared to the original imagery.

The science team introduced the time series of Sentinel-1 Single Look Complex (SLC) coherence data to locate operating mines and unaffected surfaces of mining areas. This approach facilitated the mapping of the active mining areas and measuring the scale of surface changes.

Leveraging SAR data, which enables fast and accurate mapping of surface water bodies under any conditions, EOSDA came up with a viable solution for monitoring changes in the water surface of tailings ponds.
