e-shape webinar 9.6.2022 - EO in support of agricultural activities: new horizons
Earth Observation data is becoming more and more mainstream in agricultural applications. There is however a very large diversity in how it is used, the specific applications, and how it is offered to the different end-users. In this webinar, we will highlight how these data can be used for agricultural applications, building on the experiences from e-shape. A specific focus will be on how to create added-value for a wide range of end users, including farmers, advisory services, insurance companies, policy makers and governmental institutes. Seven different use cases will be presented, each with their own specific focus and target group.
