Objectives

The main goal of the project is the development of new methods for heterogeneous data fusion and development of Grid technologies for their implementation and visualization of results. Developed method will be implemented as operational Grid-services for agricultural and natural disaster monitoring in the interests of sustainable development and security. Developed infrastructure should be considered as Ukrainian contribution into development of Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS, http://www.earthobservations.org/). The proposed infrastructure could become a segment of European Space Agency (ESA) Grid Processing on Demand (G-POD) for Earth Observation Applications (http://gpod.eo.esa.int). The developed methods and Grid infrastructure will also provide contribution to the International Charter "Space and Major Disasters" (http://www.disasterscharter.org) helping to mitigate the effects of disasters on human life and property.

Application Areas of the Project

As a result of completion of the project new methods for integration of data of different nature will be developed. Within this project the following scientific results of practical interest will be obtained:
