About the Project
Capitalise on recent results of ESA’s SEN4CAP project
that showcased the capability of Sentinel data to monitor the crop diversification rules.
Include in the analysis the so far neglected EFA types
(fallow land of all sizes, buffer strips, hedges, trees), by making use of super-resolution technology that improves the 10-20m Sentinel resolution to an improved resolution range (5-10m).
Complement the use of EO data with a system
of reliable, ground-based geo-tagged photos, captured by the farmers that exploits (a) advances that allow for improved positional accuracy, (b) low-footprint encryption techniques for improved data security and reliability and (c) image detecting manipulation techniques (image forensics).
Implement a Green Compliance toolbox
integrated with the paying agencies’ aforementioned tools.
