Subproject 1b: Crop biomass monitoring by smart combination of optical images from drones and satellites
The research in this project focuses on improving the supply security and quality of crop biomass maps for precision farming purposes. The partners want to develop and validate a service based on remote sensing imagery, from satellites, RPAS, manual airplanes and other sources, that growers can rely on for timely delivery of good biomass maps throughout the season. The service will be based on smart combination of images from satellites on cloudless days and from drones with cameras on cloudy days. Part of this project is also the founding of a cooperative of stakeholders, i.e. producers, suppliers of images, and suppliers of services.
