All's well that ends well: finalizing two Z_GIS-led humanitarian projects

Two Z_GIS-led projects in the humanitarian action domain were successfully completed with final project meetings held May 8-9 at the Earth Observation Center of DLR in Oberpfaffenhofen. Representatives from major humanitarian organisations, including Médicins Sans Frontières (MSF), Austrian Red Cross, ICRC, and SOS Children’s Villages were discussing the outcome of the FFG-ASAP funded projects and their potential uptake in operational service scenarios. While the EO4HumEn+ project has further elaborated monitoring techniques for displaced population and environmental resources, employing new technologies such as semantic time-series analysis and high-res Radar imagery, the X3D4Pop project has investigated methods for improving 3D reconstruction and disaggregation of population figures in urban areas. Both projects had strong international components being carried out in the framework of the cooperation with DLR and the Swiss Space programme.
