EONEMP (Earth Observation National Eutrophication Monitoring Programme) is a service that generates map layers and reports about the levels of eutrophication in water bodies in South Africa. It inherits from a research prototype by Dr Matthews that did the same for South African coastal waters.
For each reservoir in South Africa it processes Sentinel-3 scenes as soon as they are published and outputs derived spatial and statistical products that are automatically published on the EONEMP website (http://eonemp.cyanolakes.com)
Kartoza took the coastal water monitoring prototype and Sentinel-2 processing code and did the following:
- Developed the Django web application and front-end at http://eonemp.cyanolakes.com
- Developed MapServer web map services and SLD styles that provide the data layers in the EONEMP web application.
- Server side bash and Python scripting to fetch, process and publish Sentinel 3 scenes and derived data on a routine schedule.
- Refactoring research algorithms from Dr Matthews in Python into robust production code. This is the code that generates chlorophyll-a, cyanobacteria and other derived products from Sentinel-3 data.
