    Researcher and teaching assistant in geomatics data sciences at Université catholique de Louvain

     

    Experience

     

    Teaching assistant at  Université catholique de Louvain

     

    January 2010  -  Present (6 years 2 months)

     

    Teaching assistant in geomatics, remote sensing and photogrammetry. More specifically, I'm teaching about 80 students per year (Bio-Engineer Master students and professional workers) on practical skills in : Geomatics and remote sensing ( ArcGis, QGIS, PostGIS, ENVI, R, OTB, ERDAS), Topometry and photgrammetry (ERDAS, POTOSCAN), Project in sciences and environment technology (various geolocated DB System), Rural land planning.

     

    Researcher at  Université catholique de Louvain

     

    July 2009  -  Present (6 years 8 months)

     

    As a researcher I was involved in various research and operational projects from the European Commission and Administration. Those projects mainly focus on remote sensing in agriculture and land cover. My field of research is the quantitative extraction of bio-physical parameters retrieved from very large earth imagery data.

    EU FP7 MOCCCASIN - Monitoring winter wheat at parcel level using satellite imagery in Russia

     

    January 2010 to June 2013

     

    Members: Raphaël d'Andrimont, François Waldner

     

    MOCCCASIN (MOnitoring Crops in Continental Climates through Assimilation of Satellite INformation) is a collaborative project which focuses on improving the monitoring and forecasting of winter wheat yield in Russia by combining modelling techniques with satellite data assimilation.

     


    EU FP7 Geoland2 - Monitor water bodies using medium resolution satellite imagery in near real time in Africa

     

    June 2009 to December 2012 Members: Raphaël d'Andrimont

     

    I was in charge of a project part of Geoland2/BioPar/BP-07 (European commission GMES). The project is to develop a system using medium resolution satellite datas (SPOT-VGT,MODIS) to detect waterbodies over Africa in nearly real time. Geoland2 intends to constitute a major step forward in the implementation of the GMES Land Monitoring Core Service (LMCS). The three components (Local, Continental and Global) of the LMCS are addressed. The goal of Geoland2 is: * to prepare, validate and demonstrate pre-operational service chains and products that will underpin the LMCS, and * to propose and demonstrate a concrete functional organisation of the LMCS. BioPar produces in near-real time and off-line a series of bio-geophysical parameters describing the global vegetation state, the radiation budget at the surface and the water cycle, derived from MR and LR sensor data with a time frequency of product update on the order of 1 - 30 days.

     

    EU Copernicus Global Land - Operational monitoring of the inland water bodies at global scale in near real time

     

    January 2012 to September 2014 Members: Raphaël d'Andrimont

     

    The Global Land Component in the framework of GMES Initial Operations (GIO) provide a series bio-geophysical products on the status and evolution of land surface at global scale using satellite data. Production and delivery of the parameters are to take place in a timely manner and are complemented by the constitution of long term time series. In this project, UCL was in charge of the scientific evolution of the Water Bodies product on the PROBA-V sensor. The Water Bodies product refers to the detection of the inland water along the year providing the maximum and the minimum extent of the water surface as well as the seasonal dynamics. The area of water bodies is identified as an Essential Climate Variable (ECV) by the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS).

    EU FP7 IMAGINES - Implementation of Multi-scale Agricultural Indicators Exploiting Sentinels

     

    Members: Raphaël d'Andrimont, François Waldner

     

    IMAGINES aims at developing qualified software able to process multi-sensor data over the whole globe to generate multi-scale biophysical variables. It also aims to describe the state of the continental vegetation and is useful to assess the crop and fodder production, the water and carbon fluxes, and to derive drought indicators. Thus, IMAGINES will contribute to the continuity of the operations of the Global Component of the Copernicus Land service.

     

    ORTHOWATCH - Water bodies extraction at submetric resolution

    Members: Raphaël d'Andrimont

     


    In this project funded by the Walloon Region, I'm in charge of the conception of a tool to automatically detect the water bodies at a 25cm resolution. The tool is designed to automatically update a vector database.

    Got the heart of an explorer ? Be involved in a thrilling race to conquer the world. Over deserts, seas and mountains, be the first pioneer to tread on unchartered territory. Always be on your guard, you are not alone in this undertaking and the enemy might be nearby. Protect your land against invaders and consolidate your positions. The earth is limited and therefore, a highly coveted resource. Hurry, and take the lion’s share ! Through a highly convenient and addictive game application, the project aims to develop a database of land cover observation photo-interpreted (and/or observed in the field) on a global scale. Thanks to an innovative method allowing to assess observer’s accuracy, this massive crowdsourced data can be used as training dataset for an automated land cover classification algorithm (SVM) of Landsat images. This near real time active learning method, to the best of our knowledge, is unique in the world.
