The eStation 2.0 is an Earth Observation processing system developed by the JRC since year 2009. The eStation is designed to automatically deal with the acquisition, processing, visualization and analysis of key environmental parameters derived from remotely sensed data. The measurements are, among others, obtained from the SPOT/PROBAV, SEVIRI/MSG, TERRA-AQUA/MODIS and Copernicus Sentinel 2 and 3 Earth Observation systems.
In addition to the processing services, the eStation offers a highly customized web client, made available to different end-users for computing ad-hoc thematic products and environmental indicators. All processing steps are easily configurable allowing the user to modify the generated environmental indicators and to implement new ones.
The eStation has been distributed to the Regional and National Centres in all sub-Saharan African countries involved in the MESA project (Monitoring of Environment and Security in Africa), and is being further developed and customized for the beneficiaries of the GMES & Africa support program.
