  • Rice crops in Vietnam under the eye of Pleiades Neo.
    Mérimée

    VietSCO on the methane attack with Mérimée

    To help Vietnam achieve its objective of reducing methane emissions from rice-growing, the Mérimée project is enhancing the VietSCO portal with dedicated maps. Find out more.

  • The archipelagos of French Polynesia, like Bora-Bora here, have very specific characteristics that need to be understood in order to preserve them.
    TAHATAI Neo

    TAHATAI Neo takes shape

    In a delightful shade of Polynesian blue, the TAHATAI team presents the latest developments in its Neo version. The aim is to roll out its coastal management solution beyond Tahiti and enhance it with new functionalities.

  • AEROLAB Space is focusing its initial developments on the city of Reims, seen here by Sentinel-2 on 7 October 2023.
    AEROLAB SPACE

    AEROLAB SPACE shows GHG emissions for the Grand Est region

    Establishing carbon footprints and verifying whether or not greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets have been met requires an inventory of GHG emissions. The AEROLAB SPACE project is a response to the need to obtain this data quickly, on a local and regional scale, by proposing a real-time measurement and modelling method.

  • 310 French reservoirs are already monitored daily by satellite, and by 2024 there will be 5,000.
    Success story

    SCO France at the forefront of the future national hydrological service

    The results of the France 2030 hydrology call for tenders are very SCO-coloured, reflecting the effectiveness of the approach, both for project developers and as a lever for public action in the face of climate change. For a number of SCO players, including the start-up MEOSS, it's a real success story!

  • Coral beds on the outer slope of the Réunion site.
    BioEOS

    A tailor-made campaign for BioEOS

    To validate the results of processing applied to satellite data, you need to be able to see the real thing on the ground, even when it's in the water! The BioEOS project takes us behind the scenes of a major in situ data acquisition campaign being carried out on La Réunion from 14 November to 1st December 2023, using unusual manipulations.

  • Identification of wasteland in the Izifriche.
    SCO FrichesAgricoles

    Agricultural wasteland, discover the Izifriche solution

    Izifriche is the solution for local authorities, those involved in sustainable agricultural development and environmental protection! Developed in France by Safer Occitanie as a result of the SCO FrichesAgricoles project, this support service for identifying agricultural wasteland promises to be a real tool for reflection.

  • Eagle Hedges dashboard.
    EagleHedges

    EagleHedges has delivered its tools for analyzing the bocage network

    As ecological corridors offering numerous ecosystem services, hedgerows are an important lever for agro-ecological transition. Thanks to the EagleHedges project, territories now have access to a mapping service capable of automatically detecting hedgerows based on satellite images or aerial data. An open-source tool, HedgeTools, is also available to characterize the hedgerow network.

  • Each SCO project relies on satellite data, like this Sentinel-2 view of the Gironde estuary on March 22, 2024.
    SCO France: 2024 Edition

    SCO France: 2024 Edition

    The fifth call for projects of SCO France resulted in the approval of 11 projects covering several areas of climate change impacts. With water management still at the heart of our concerns, this year saw an increase in the number of digital twins and a clear focus on the African continent.

  • The 85 albedo tiles available on Theia. CSTB can now use these measurements for its national database of 22 million residential buildings in mainland France.
    Sat4BDNB, French National Albedo

    Cities: Sat4BDNB operationalizes albedo production on a national scale

    Modifying the albedo of urban environments is an interesting way of reducing the urban heat island (UHI) phenomenon. However, albedo is easy to measure from space. Thanks to the SCO Sat4BDNB project, this measurement is now automatically calculated from Sentinel-2 data and freely available on Theia.

    Coping with natural disasters

    Coping with natural disasters

    Fires, cyclones, mud, rain, snow, wind... Whatever their form, nature's wrath is intensifying. On Thursday 14 March 2023, at the twelfth " SCO France Quarterly Meeting ", three projects presented their SCOlutions, using satellite data to anticipate the impacts of some of them.
