The CODE-DE marketplace presents an overview of all activities featured by CODE-DE. Main categories are DATASETS, SERVICES, PROJECTS, TOOLS, and PROCESSORS.

Technically speaking the marketplace is just a summary of the content available from the CODE-DE portal managed by its Content Management System (CMS) . The overview is intended to provide the reader quick and simple information on all relevant CODE-DE components. The individual components provide their own web based management interfaces. The service marketplace links to them. Since we use single sign-on, the user can continue his tasks without interruption.

In addition to the data available on the CODE-DE platform the Spatial Data Infrastructure Germany (GDI-DE) and the Geoportal.DE provide further relevant geodata. More information on Copernicus, the Sentinels, Earth Observation Missions and sensors and related topics can be found on Copernicus.EU.

In the next version, projects, realized in the frame of CODE-DE, as well as processor modules available for new services will be featured on the marketplace. At the moment these pages have no content, the message "Your search yielded no results" is returned.

Datasets

The Service Marketplace includes a JavaScript based CSW client which allows creating CSW queries for the Discovery Service of the CODE-DE infrastructure. The Discovery Service returns metadata entries that are INSPIRE conform about products from the collaborative platform as well as third-party missions.

The Global Urban Footprint® (GUF®) dataset is based on the radar (SAR) satellite imagery of the German satellites TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X. By creating the GUF database, scientists at the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) have succeeded in using a newly developed method to generate a global raster map of the world’s built-up pattern in a so far unprecedented spatial resolution of about 12m per raster cell.

Using a fully automated processing system, a global coverage of more than 180,000 very high resolution SAR images (3m ground resolution) has been analyzed acquired between 2010 and 2013. Thereby, the backscatter amplitudes of the SAR data have been used in combination with derived textural information to delineate human settlements in a highly automated, complex decision-making process. The evaluation procedure based mainly on radar signals detects the characteristic vertical structures of human habitations – primarily built-up areas. In addition, auxiliary data such as digital elevation models have been included to improve the classification process. In total, over 20 million datasets were processed with a combined volume of about 320 terabytes. The final global maps show three coverage categories (e. g. in a B&W representation): Built-up areas (vertical structures only) in black, non-built-up surfaces in white, areas of no coverage by TSX/TDX satellites (NoData) as most parts of the oceans in grey.

The final product has been optimized for fast online access through web services by merging the 5° x 5° GUF tiles into a single global mosaic. Furthermore reduced resolution overviews have been generated with an interpolation algorithm, that computes the average value of all contribution pixels. The global mosaic uses PackBits compression to reduce file size.

The Global Urban Footprint® (GUF®) dataset is based on the radar (SAR) satellite imagery of the German satellites TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X. Using a fully automated processing system, the so-called Urban Footprint Processor, a global coverage of more than 180,000 very high resolution SAR images (3m ground resolution) has been analyzed, mainly acquired between 2010 and 2013. Thereby, the backscatter amplitudes of the SAR data have been used in combination with derived textural information to delineate human settlements in a highly automated, complex decision-making process. In addition, auxiliary data such as digital elevation models have been included to improve the classification process. The data collection of satellite imagery was performed mainly between 2011 and 2012 (93 %), with single scenes with more recent acquisition dates (of 2013 / 2014) used to fill data gaps.

Services

These services include search and access (see also DATASETS), browsing imagery, downloading and processing (available from mid-2017). Application projects

Copernicus is a European system for monitoring the Earth. Data is collected by different sources, including Earth observation satellites and in-situ sensors. The data is processed and provides reliable and up-to-date information about six thematic areas: land, marine, atmosphere, climate change, emergency management and security. The land theme is divided into four main components:

Global
The Global Land Service provides a series of bio-geophysical products on the status and evolution of the land surface at global scale at mid and low spatial resolution. The products are used to monitor the vegetation, the water cycle and the energy budget.

Pan-European
The pan-European component provides information about the land cover and land use (LC/LU), land cover and land use changes and land cover characteristics. The latter includes information about imperviousness, forests, natural grasslands, wetlands, and permanent water bodies.

Local
The local component focuses on different hotspots, i.e. areas that are prone to specific environmental challenges and problems. This includes detailed LC/LU information for the larger EU cities (Urban Atlas), riparian zones along European river networks and NATURA 2000 sites. It will also include maps of coastal areas.

In-situ
All of the Copernicus services need access to in-situ data in order to ensure an efficient and effective use of Copernicus space-borne data. Next to data provided by participating countries, Earth observation from space also yields pan-European reference datasets, such as a Digital Elevation Model.

The Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) provides regular and systematic reference information on the physical state, variability and dynamics of the ocean and marine ecosystems for the global ocean and the European regional seas.

The observations and forecasts produced by the service support all marine applications. For instance, the provision of data on currents, winds and sea ice help to improve ship routing services, offshore operations or search and rescue operations, thus contributing to marine safety.
The service also contributes to the protection and the sustainable management of living marine resources in particular for aquaculture, fishery research or regional fishery organisations.
Physical and marine biogeochemical components are useful for water quality monitoring and pollution control. Sea level rise helps to assess coastal erosion. Sea surface temperature is one of the primary physical impacts of climate change and has direct consequences on marine ecosystems.

As a result of this, the service supports a wide range of coastal and marine environment applications. Many of the data delivered by the service (e.g. temperature, salinity, sea level, currents, wind and sea ice) also play a crucial role in the domain of weather, climate and seasonal forecasting.

Some of today’s most important environmental concerns relate to the composition of the atmosphere. The increasing concentration of the greenhouse gases and the cooling effect of aerosol are prominent drivers of a changing climate, but the extent of their impact is often still uncertain.

At the Earth’s surface, aerosols, ozone and other reactive gases such as nitrogen dioxide determine the quality of the air around us, affecting human health and life expectancy, the health of ecosystems and the fabric of the built environment. Ozone distributions in the stratosphere influence the amount of ultraviolet radiation reaching the surface. Dust, sand, smoke and volcanic aerosols affect the safe operation of transport systems and the availability of power from solar generation, the formation of clouds and rainfall, and the remote sensing by satellite of land, ocean and atmosphere.

To address these environmental concerns there is a need for data and processed information. The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) has been developed to meet these needs, aiming at supporting policymakers, business and citizens with enhanced atmospheric environmental information.

The Copernicus Climate Change Service is designed to respond to changes in the environment and society associated with climate change.

The service will provide information for monitoring and predicting climate change and help to support adaptation and mitigation strategies.

It will provide access to several climate indicators (e.g. temperature increase, sea level rise, ice sheet melting, ocean warming) and climate indices (e.g. based on records of temperature, precipitation, drought events) for both the identified climate drivers and the expected climate impacts.

Tools

CODE-DE provides useful tools like the Sentinel toolboxes. Tools that are externally hosted will be linked; other tools can be directly downloaded from the marketplace. For information on how to use these tools in the frame of CODE-DE check the user manual or contact HelpDesk.

TIMESAT is a software package for analysing time-series of satellite sensor data.

TIMESAT has been developed to investigate the seasonality of satellite time-series data and their relationship with dynamic properties of vegetation, such as phenology and temporal development. The temporal domain holds important information about short- and long-term vegetation changes. TIMESAT was originally intended for handling noisy time-series of AVHRR NDVI data and to extract seasonality information from the data. The program now has the capability to handle different types of remotely sensed time-series , e.g. data from Terra/MODIS at different time resolutions. It has also been tested with eddy covariance data and moisture data, although these applications are not the main target.

The software Fmask (Function of mask) is used for automated clouds, cloud shadows, and snow masking for Landsat (4, 5, 7, and 8) and Sentinel-2 data.

This package implements the Fmask algorithm as a Python module. It is intended that this can be wrapped in a variety of main programs which can handle the local details of how the image files are named and organised, and is intended to provide maximum flexibility. It should not be tied to expecting the imagery to be layed out in a particular manner. This modular design also simplifies the use of the same core algorithm on either Landsat and Sentinel imagery. The wrapper programs take care of differences in file organisation and metadata formats, while the core algorithm is the same for both
