HubCAP is a new product from the Icon Group and is supported by InCubed, a programme of, and funded by, ESA, the European Space Agency. The Icon Group is mindful of the emerging needs from ELMS/CAP and has developed an Open Source “Hands-Free Monitoring” Platform for integration with existing workflows.
The objective is about aligning with a new paradigm in Land Cover and Use determination using the use of satellite imagery that has been enabled by the move from an artisanal process to an automated workflow-based provision of information. This will free up trained and capable technicians to provide analysis and information, rather than just simple image-based products making the end user experience easier and more tailor-made.
HubCAP is a robust and simple platform through which Government Agencies (especially CAP, non-CAP Paying Agencies and Environmental Agencies), and commercial users may access the benefits of Sentinel data in a fully supported, legally recorded and compliant manner. These customers are always in constant need of custom land monitoring as Europe has a wind range of types of lands and therefore different monitoring needs.
The Paying Agency existing interface for CAP users which they will modify to consume HubCap information
Based upon results of other activities (SEN4CAP, DIAS)
Based on a validated user concept and other activities (IACS)
With a comprehensive API for monitoring via direct integration with existing administration systems.
Has an advanced dashboard for conducting bespoke ad-hoc local analyses.
Offers and supports integrated ‘geo-photo’ and other forms of verification where required.
Is fully supported and very customer focused.
Each classification ‘transaction’ is fully recorded and certified showing the algorithm version and image sets used.
HubCAP is an ‘Application Platform’ for the agriculture and environmental sectors. It is based on Copernicus data and the SEN4CAP toolkit, making it a highly flexible system. If you wish to have more information or a demo, please get in touch with Elaine Doyle: firstname.lastname@example.org
