Challenge with Institut Cartogràfic i Geològic de Catalunya (ICGC)
CALL 3: MONITORING AND CONTROL OF DROUGHT IN PASTURES USING EARTH OBSERVATION TECHNOLOGY
The aim of this call is to find technological solutions that facilitate monitoring and the decision-making regarding the potential effects of droughts on pastures in agricultural productions through the analysis of satellite images.
Within agricultural sector, drought in pastures is a situation that can directly affect the production of farmers and ranchers, hence Secretaria d’Agenda Rural wants to monitor pastures in order to identify drought levels of these.
This call presents an improvement range in the capability to access up-to-date information, and more information that can provide added value for drought management in pastures. The proposed solution must be able to facilitate interoperability with existing viewers, such as Visor Agroforestal i3 (external link) from ICGC, in future implementations.
Therefore, this call opens up the following main lines of work. You do not have to address them all to participate:
- Identify drought levels in pastures with a weekly frequency.
- Offer a query tool open to farmers for the drought state.
- Provide information that allows warning of potential extreme situations in crops.
