    Special Interest Group | Agriculture



    Agriculture plays a key role in the Earth future, being connected directly or indirectly to more than one of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
    Earth observation plays a well known key aspect in planning and monitoring agricultural practices. Precision farming uses satellite imagery to model and spatialize several aspects related to crop growth, such as plant health, water stress, yield prediction, pest detection, damage from extreme events, just to name a few.
    The agriculture SIG aims to foster research collaboration among institutions and accross specific disciplines that use data from remote sensing to monitor agriculture. This will be done through several activities:
    • collaborating with other societies, such at working groups in the International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) and other associations that have common interests with this EARSeL SIG.
    • promoting publications in peer reviewed scientific journals, by organizing special issues on specific topics
    • joining efforts in related activities, like summer schools, public engagement and outreach
    • organizing/co-organizing workshops and seminars

    Special Issue – deadline in 2023



    Activities include workshops, special sessions hosted by other societies and dedicated special issues in journals.
