Published: 22.01.2015

Copernicus Urban Development Analyser (CUDA) project, led by our scientist Kaupo Voormansik, won the biggest scholarship from Vega Fond. CUDA (Copernicus Urban Development Analyser) is an integrated service for monitoring urban growth and related processes by combining satellite monitoring with anonymous mobile positioning service (MPS). CUDA proposal already won the DLR Environmental Challenge in 2013 Copernicus Masters remote sensing applications contest. CUDA uses Copernicus Sentinel-1 and -2 satellite data to monitor the built-up area, land-cover type and the changes in time. Anonymous MPS data is used for estimating the population in urban areas, but also the location of homes and working-places.
