During development of the Feasibility Study proposal, our champion customer USACE expressed interest in a Proof of Concept (PoC) demonstration. The purpose of the PoC was to demonstrate to customers that we can produce the service they are interested in. It was also to make clear that we have the technical capability and the track record as an organisation that delivers. The PoC was designed to stimulate discussion with the customers to encourage co-design of the product, especially the web portal front end. The critical elements to be proven in the PoC were the technical aspects, as those were the ones that customers were most interested in. Development of the PoC within this project included: 1) Demo of existing CEH data portal websites to customers to illustrate what could be possible. 2) Demonstration that we can produce macrophyte cover and floating weed maps using Senitel-1 radar and Sentinel-2 optical imagery with a level of accuracy and latency that is acceptable to user requirements. 3) Basic demo of page layouts and potential content for the product web portal. Produce a mock-up of what the final web portal could look like, showing maps, time-series and key statistics to see whether this meets users’ needs.
