Martijn is a PhD student and research assistant at OpenGeoHub. His main focus is mapping land use and land cover with many classes, but he occasionally fills in as BBQ organizer, game show host, chauffeur, cable hunter, and board game consultant.
Strap yourself in and join Martijn and Luka on an Epic journey through the EcoDataCube, an analysis-ready, totally open multidimensional spatiotemporal data cube covering most of Europe! After explaining how large amounts of 30m and 10m earth observation data was aggregated, gap-filled, and used to create 20 annual land cover maps with 43 classes at 30m resolution, they will show you how to access the 200+ cloud-optimized data sets yourself with your browser, GIS, and Python code.
Any leftover time will be used to discuss why no dataset is truly analysis-ready, how no map is perfect, and a collaborative attempt to create the ultimate land cover legend.
