Personalized public services in support of the implementation of the CAP (Η2020/ INSO-1-2015)
RECAP will develop a methodology for improving the efficiency and transparency of the compliance monitoring procedure of CAP through a cloud-based SaaS platform, using large volumes of publicly available data provided by satellite remote sensing and farmer-generated data through mobile devices. The final application offers farmers a tool to support compliance with CAP regulations by providing personalized information including simplified interpretations of regulations and early alerts on possible breaches. The RECAP services will be tested and validate in an operational environment in 5 countries with the participation of public authorities, farmers and agricultural consultants.

A Citizen Observatory and Innovation Marketplace for Land Use and Land Cover Monitoring (Η2020/ SC5-17-2015)
Τhe aim of the LandSense project is to build a far-reaching citizen observatory for Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) monitoring that will also function as a technology innovation marketplace. LandSense will deploy advanced tools, services and resources to mobilize and engage citizens to collect in-situ observations (i.e. ground-based data and visual interpretations of EO imagery). Integrating these citizen-driven in-situ data collections with established authoritative and open access data sources will help reduce costs, extend GEOSS and Copernicus capacities, and support comprehensive environmental monitoring systems.
