DHI GRAS is specialised in the development and provision of earth observation, satellite image processing and Geographic Information Systems technologies. DHI GRAS has a strong background in remote sensing for hydrology, water quality, environmental assessment and land cover mapping. Projects often run in interdisciplinary  project settings requiring close collaboration with users, hydrologists, engineers etc. Consequently DHI GRAS is used to adapting solutions and outputs to the specific  needs of the user and the project context.

DHI GRAS generally works closely with universities, research institutions and commercial partners in order to develop innovative and cost effective applications that can be applied in a range of different projects. DHI GRAS is closely associated with and also physically located at the Department of Geography and Geology (DGG), University of Copenhagen ensuring a close link to the remote sensing research community.

DHI GRAS’s abilities in terms of processing and analysis of large quantities of ENVISAT data were initiated in 2004 from various activities under the EOMD programme and further strengthened when DHI GRAS in 2006 became part of the Danish contribution to the GMES project MarCoast, now MarCoast2. Especially during the MarCoast activities a very robust processing environment has been built in order to meet the needs for routine, operational delivery of ENVISAT data to the end-users. The system is ideal for processing large quantities of data as it involves only a minimum of interaction in the processing steps from L1-data to interpreted output.
