Inspecting using Copernicus and UAV Data (iCUD)

Luís Marques, Cláudia Morgado and Susana Silva

(Submission #57)


Earth Observation data and the Copernicus programme provide highly updated and valuable geographic information, extremely important as support for law enforcement in the fields of environment and spatial planning. However, at the institutional level, it is still uncertain which are the best practices, methods, legal applications and inner knowledge/capabilities to use these tools for environmental compliance and land use analysis. Therefore, it is relevant to identify sources of pertinent information and applications, recognising potential users of these remote sensing data, understanding how this information can support inspection activities within the EU members and how it has already been applied and can be applied in the future, considering main procedures, methods and legal constrains (concerning geo-spatial evidence appliance in different countries legal background). Associated with the pre geo-analysis (Copernicus-based), mostly space-based data, there is a complementary related information that can be acquired through Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV - Drone) for more detailed and specific (circumscribed) information on site. This information supports the Copernicus images for specific, uncertain, miscellaneous (complex) areas, at high resolution and on demand. The awareness of this geo-spatial remote sense data, as tools for identify on field inspection activities offers solutions for a collaborative support system within the UE institutions, sharing experiences, main constraints and knowledge of geospatial technological application.
