Data-driven platform for efficient farm management combining EO, IoT and GIS data 2022-03-22T11:54:10+00:00

Product Description

A webinar on platforms for accessing and using spatial and satellite data in efficient data-driven farm management with practical demonstrations of use.

This webinar addresses specialists for agricultural management and business planning familiar with the standard planning calculations. With the webinar, we present and discuss the research approach and preliminary results from the Ekogen project. Recently the FARM MANAGER platform has been largely upgraded with the integration of three type of data to increase the quality of calculations and to support better planning and managing of farms: GIS data (like land cadaster, digital orthophoto, agricultural units), EO data (Copernicus Sentinel), IoT data (on-field sensors).

With the webinar we present:

  • the technological aspect, including main building blocks used for data integration from relatively diverse types of data sources, will be presented,
  • the advantages and new features of business planning and management in farming will be presented.

This webinar is held in Slovenian language
