The project addresses a key scientific problem: How can we use e-science methods and techniques to substantially improve the extraction of land use and land cover change information from big Earth Observation data sets in an open and reproducible way? In response to this challenge, our project will conceive, build and deploy a completely new type of knowledge platform for organization, access, processing and analysis of big Earth Observation data. We will show that this knowledge platform allows scientists to produce information in a completely new way. Since our platform is fully based on open source software, we will also show that it promotes data sharing and reproducibility of results. (AU)
