The Seabird Scenario (Ana Carneiro & Maria Dias, BirdLife International)
EO4wildlife platform aims to design and develop an open service platform and interoperable toolbox to process geospatial environmental simulations using Sentinel Earth Observation data that are intelligently combined with other observation sources. The platform will offer high level services that can be accessed by scientists to perform their respective research. Services will be based on dedicated scenarios that were built based on the interest of different scientific communities.
