Tools

Below are the tools developed and delivered by the SCO projects.

EO4DroughtMonitoring
EO4DroughtMonitoring Interface

A tool for characterising, monitoring and forecasting drought on a regional scale

An information display and distribution platform developed by InSight, the indicators put in place provide institutions with an objective, up-to-date, spatialized and temporal response to the drought phenomenon.

Developed in New Caledonia, the tool also helps farmers to manage their crops in a rational way, by enabling them to monitor the situation as closely as possible, in line with environmental conditions and changes in them.  InSight is now working on extending the tool to other territories and extending its functionalities.

🔵 EO4DM is a commercial service and requires an account and password.

LITTOSAT
Littosat Bretagne interface

The coastline tracked by satellite

Designed for coastal zone managers, Littosat systematically displays mosaics of high and low tide images at high spatial resolution (10 m). This data is used to generate high value-added products on the nature of the seabed, the depth of shallow waters and turbidity, and is used to detect seasonal changes at regional level.

Two interfaces have been online since January 2024 for operational testing in pilot areasLittosat Bretagne and Littosat Normandie.

Forecasting cyclonic coastal flooding

Tested in the Bengal delta, the Band-SOS demonstrator is a pre-operational service for a coastal flood forecasting platform based on multispectral satellite images (Copernicus Sentinel-2). In operation since January 2023, the tool is used daily by the Bangladesh Flood Forecasting and Warning Center (FFWC).

Band-SOS provides a real-time forecast of the risk of flooding when a tropical cyclone strikes the coastline, coupled with a map of the vulnerability of populations at risk.

VietSCO
VietSCO platform

Dynamic monitoring of rice crops

Based entirely on radar imagery, the VietSCO platform, part of the Vimesco-rice project, offers a set of maps to support the resilience of rice-growing in Vietnam in the face of slow-onset climate change phenomena.

It provides seasonal maps of rice crops and annual intensity, maps of flood extent and duration, and projections of land suitability for rice cultivation.

SCO St Louis
SCO St Louis Interface

Assessing the vulnerability of coastal populations and economic activities

Developed for the city of St Louis in Senegal and replicable for other coastal areas, the SCO St Louis interface combines all types of data to estimate the socio-economic vulnerability of coastal cities to the effects of climate change and raise awareness among local players.

The mapping platform can be used to select and combine several layers of information, including historical floods, land use and essential infrastructure, as well as simulations of marine and river flooding according to different IPCC scenarios.

FORO (Flood Observatory for Resilient Occitania)
FORO platform

Improving resilience to extreme hydro-meteorological events

Developed as part of the FLAude project, FORO uses satellite observation to improve the resilience of areas to the risks of flooding caused by intense run-off.

A genuine decision-making tool, FORO offers interactive maps to pinpoint problem areas and the levers for action. FORO is gradually being rolled out across the 23 departments of the Mediterranean Arc.
