Moscow to create a portal for environmental monitoring

Russia: Moscow plans to create a portal platform called “open landscape” to promote the use of high-resolution satellite data by environmental and educational organisations.

The platform will be created by Regional Development Centre Moscow and non-commercial partner Transparent World. This step has been taken to avoid public oversight of the condition of environmental ‘hot spots’ and environmental landscapes of our planet. To do this, the initiators of the platform “open landscape” plan to use multi-temporal satellite images of high and ultra-high resolution technology of modern crowd-mapping (mapping the forces of a wide range of volunteers around the world) and open monitoring tools.
