GEOEssential

GEOEssential Acquirer: European Commission Performer: Space Research Institute NASU-NSAU Project leader from Ukraine: Prof., Dr. Nataliia Kussul Project Coordinator: Anthony Lehmann, Prof. at University of Geneva Project Overview: GEOEssential is addressing the need for trusted sources of data and information to monitor the progresses made on environmental conditions towards policy targets. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of Essential Variables across GEO Societal Benefit Areas. It will create cross-thematic workflows to evaluate, predict and monitor natural resources to inform via Earth Observations the Sustainable Development Goals. Existing structures and platforms will be analysed in order to identify substantial gaps and synergies for addressing the needs of environmental policy in agriculture,… Детальніше

EvIDENz: Earth observation-based information products for drought risk assessment on a national basis

Acquirer: The University of Bonn (ZFL) Performer: Space Research Institute NASU-NSAU Project leader: Prof., Dr. Nataliia Kussul Duration: 2016-2018 The main goal of the project: Evidenz project aimed to solving the problems of monitoring Earth for agricultural drought risk reduction at the national level, including limiting the socio-economic impact and identification of a common set of criteria to assess the risks of this type of disaster globally. Objectives of the project will be implemented over the territory of Ukraine (for the pilot regions) and South Africa. These countries are selected for project execution as they have the most possible difference in agro-climatic conditions. Such selection of the studied areas will… Детальніше

Training «GIS and satellite monitoring for agrarian enterprises» was held

On the 30-31 of January held training «GIS and satellite monitoring for agrarian enterprises». During 2-day training course attenders were informed about “state of the art” agromonitoring products created with use of optical and radar satellite data. In particular attention was paid to biophysical parameters (LAI and FAPAR), pros and cons of their use in the domain of satellite agromonitoring were shown. Course attenders received practical work skills in modern GIS technologies – basics of raster and vector data processing in free GIS-system QGIS, fundamentals of agromonitoring and yield forecasting with use of satellite data. On concrete use cases we showed how crop state development monitoring is performed (with use… Детальніше
