The goal of the presentation is to present the project AquaLab that won the Environment, Energy and Health Challenge by DLR at the Copernicus Masters competition in 2020.
The team of AquaLab consists of friends with similar education in geodetic engineering. The idea behind the project occurred at the beginning of 2020 when more than 100 000 inhabitants in Bulgaria were left without running water for more than 6 months. The water reservoir Student started drying out in June 2019. The decreasing levels were noticed in November 2019.
AquaLab is a smart remote managerial system (GIS) for water reservoirs. It is based on Earth Observation Data (EO) and in-situ measurements. We use satellite data from the Copernicus Programme, mainly radar and optical data from Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2. We have established a work frame on how to compute the water surface level and correlate the results with volumetric open data provided by the government.
The web-based platform is intended to be free and available to all users interested in the topic. We want such data to be open to the society and raise the necessity of open EO and GIS data.
