SWOS delivers the infrastructure for a long term and short term monitoring of wetlands, including major threats for wetlands and the success of restauration and protection measures.

The SWOS service has been demonstrated by producing maps and indicators for several points in time for 50 wetland locations in Europe, Africa and Asia based on freely available satellite images from different sources using the GEOclassifier toolbox.

The produced maps and indicatiors are the input for many sevice cases that have been developed in the frame of the SWOS project based on user requirements.
