Education

EO4GEO aims to bridge the gap between the supply and demand of education and training in the space/geospatial sectors. Terrascope provides tools and web services, hereby supporting the uptake and integration of space/geospatial solutions in a broad range of application domains.

EO data exploration and analysis platform

In the EO4GEO project we develop an innovative strategy for skills development and capacity building in the EO/GI field. The Terrascope platform supports this by providing interactive tools that gives basic insights into the Earth observation world, as well as offering a cloud based environment where students can work on specific scenarios that require earth observation skills.

Easy access

For the Terrascope tools that require you to log in as a user, you can use EduGain single sign-in.

Terrascope tools & web services

The main tools provided by the Terrascope platform are:

  • Jupyter notebooks are well known and can be used both for building assignments where students need to program, as building interactive dashboards.
  • Virtual research environment allows students and teachers to obtain a pre-configured virtual machine, with direct access to all tools and data needed for a particular exercise.
  • The Terrascope viewer, which allows visual data browsing and export. A student can compare images or create animations with a few clicks.
  • OpenEO, which provides you a standardized API for processing EO data, also included in PROBA-V MEP/Terrascope environment.

Linking with learning management systems

Educational institutions use a variety of learning management systems to publish course material and track student progress. To support this variety, EO4GEO tests integration with these systems:

To create portable, interactive, content, we rely on the H5P standard. Click here to check some example widgets to get an idea of what is possible.

Online Demos

In the online demo exercise you can get an idea of what is possible. In this example, students have to drag a picture of a specific land cover type to the corresponding location on the map.
