In summary, the Educational level of the MI-SAFE package includes:

 Image Added
  • Visualization and availability of EO global open source data in an easy-to-use on-line viewer (MI-SAFE viewer).
  • Generation and visualization of FAST modelling outputs in an online viewer using knowledge rules and numerical analysis at global scale (i.e. with relatively high uncertainties)
  • Access to the knowledge rules generated by the FAST project (The science behind MI-SAFE).
  • Access to methodological videos to produce similar products with our scientific standards ('FAST methodological videos').


Specifically, the services of the MI-SAFE Expert level include:

 Image Added
  • Value added products from Sentinel in agreement with use conditions specified by the FAST team and the ESA through the online MI-SAFE GeoNetwork CSW catalogue .
  • Access to knowledge rules (expressed in the algorithms and linked to knowledge producers) and access to project Deliverables during training sessions.
  • Invitation to expert starter training sessions integrated in Delft Software Days.
  • Membership of a Community of Practice (CoP) that promotes the further professionalization of “eco engineers” by promoting and facilitating the exchange between (civil) engineers and ‘green infrastructure / biogeomophology’ experts.


The services of the Advanced level has to be defined in interaction with the FAST team in the corresponding commercial service level agreement. As a summary, these services can include:

OGC data

  • Delivering the best quality data for the service requested.
  • Collecting and processing EO imagery.
  • Collecting and processing hydrodynamic boundary conditions.
  • Integrating high-resolution datasets in FAST analysis framework.
  • Performing ground truthing field work to calibrate and validate datasets (including instrumentation if required).
  • Capacitating (training) the client to perform independently the required steps following FAST protocols

OS modelling

Building new functionalities such as:

  • Analysis of seasonality, temporal and spatial trends of foreshore and vegetation properties.
  • Probabilistic scenario analysis of overtopping and failure of infrastructure.
  • Future sea level rise or wave and storm surge forcing scenarios analysis.

Advanced flooding, inundation, damage analysis making use of couplings of FAST with the RISC-KIT toolbox, Coastal Hazard Wheel and Delft3D software.

Advice and training

  • Advice from the FAST team (problem analysis, review, quality check and support)
  • Extended training on use of XBeach and FAST in the integrated model interface Delft Dashboard.
  • Extended on site training or educational services.
  • Advice on project development.
