The 2019 JRC workshop on checks and management of agricultural land in the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) was held from Wednesday 10 April (9.00 AM) to Thursday 11 April (4.00 PM) in Valladolid, Spain. All presentations available here:
Dear G4CAP users,
we have a pleasure to announce that WorldView 4 (WV4) sensor has passed geometry benchmark tests with satisfactory results. The WV4 sensor has had positive results with RMSE values below established thresholds for all VHR prime/backup profiles used in the CAP image acquisition programme. The sensor may be used in the CAP image acquisition programme as of May 8th.
See document under the G4CAP - Documentation Tab
we have just uploaded in the Documentation section an updated version of the Sentinel2 alert module micro-manual.
We strongly encourage the reading in order to understand the new features available.
today the system is going to be upgraded to version 2.0, providing new important features for MSs Administrations, so it will be unavailable for about half a day. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
we are glad to announce that the S2 Alert module is now working well and this morning we successfully completed the latest Sentinel Requests to be managed over Ireland. Actually we have solved the issue with ESA infrastructure since the 19th of August, but we waited for completely manage all the Sentinel Requests in the system before making this announce.
Please exploit this feature as much as you can, in order to evaluate the usefulness of Sentinel-2 imagery for your controls and provide important feedbacks for 2017 Campaign.
In case of issues or requests for information, do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com, or check the manual available in the Documentation section.
after two very positive months of tests of the Sentinel2-alert module (more than one hundred Sentinel Requests collected, hundreds of compliant S2 Acquisitions stored and notified), we are now facing some technical issues in the interaction with the upgraded ESA S2 infrastructure.
We are in strict contact with ESA support team to figure out what is causing the issue (that seems to be on their side) and how to solve the problem. Unluckily we have to suspend our service until a solution is found. We will come back to you as soon as we will have (good) news and data search will be reactivated. Thanks a lot for understanding.
Dear G4CAP users, upgrade to version 1.6, housing the new modules for Sentinel-2 alerts, and other updates visible in the versions log have been done. We will soon issue an instruction for the S2 alert sw module.
Dear G4CAP users, the JRC is pleased to announce that a new version of the G4QuicklookBrowser has been released yesterday on the production environment. To be able to use it, please clear the cache of your browser after on a G4QLB window. In Chrome you have to type SHIFT+F5, in Firefox CTRL+F5, in IE CTRL+SHIFT+DEL. We hope you will enjoy our new developments.
The JRC welcomes you to the new Web application studied and implemented to fulfil the CwRS users needs.
This new system will try to improve your daily experience and to answer to your needs and wishes about the management of the CAP image acquistion Campaign.
Our team sincerely hopes to satisfy your expectations.
Dear G4CAP users, we are doing an hard job to get the new system online and make it performant. We kindly ask you to be patient in case something is not working and just report all the issues you experience to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with a description of the context and a screenshot of the misbehaviour.
We are trying to do our best to improve your daily work and we will improve our system day by day, following your suggestions.
