Emerging Earth Observation Technologies and Techniques in Global Agricultural Monitoring: GEOGLAM and Other Activities





Session ID#: 24588

Session Description:
Earth Observations (EO) from satellite and in situ data sources are valuable resources for monitoring changes in global croplands and rangelands. New data sources, technologies, and techniques emerging from the public and private domains are growing the potential and realized applications of EO for global agricultural monitoring at multiple temporal and spatial scales. We invite abstracts which broadly deal with the use and application of EO for cropland and rangeland monitoring, and highlight emerging technologies and techniques related to 1) data sources (e.g. UAV, micro satellites, SAR, passive microwave, fluorescence, crowdsourcing); 2) data access and use (e.g. data fusion, big data, artificial intelligence, web-enabled tools and cloud computing); and 3) knowledge/technology transfer modalities. In-session discussions will be oriented toward coordinating monitoring efforts, such as the Group on Earth Observations Global Agricultural Monitoring (GEOGLAM), a G20 international initiative to enhance global EO-based agricultural information usage by decision and policy makers.
