In NextGEOSS Biodiversity Pilot WP 6.2.1, we focus on creating the NextGEOSS European remote sensing-enabled EBVs (RS enabled-EBVs) data-hub by identifying and populating available RS-enabled EBVs products. 123 variables were compiled as EBV candidates for five out of six EBV classes, as the genetic composition cannot be measured using remote sensing data. All EBV candidates were prioritized based on different criteria and observation requirements including relevancy to Aichi biodiversity targets, availability through remote sensing data (i.e., feasibility), and a measure of accuracy and maturity of remote sensing technologies and techniques. The 30 highest-prioritized RS-enabled EBVs were selected, and from these available RS-enabled EBVs products were identified with special consideration to their spatial resolution and scales. Metadata was created for each considered RS-enabled EBVs products with respect to the data provider and inserted in the NextGEOSS data-hub.
