The overarching objective of VISCA is to facilitate increased climate resilience of wine production in the south of Europe, while minimizing costs to wine growers.
BIOMAP2SOIL – Biological analysis of soils and advanced data analytics for precision agriculture maps
The main objective of the BIOMAP2SOIL project is the further development of a measurement method capturing physical, chemical and biological variability based on soil sampling.
LandSense is a modern citizen observatory for Land Use & Land Cover (LULC) monitoring, connecting citizens with Earth Observation (EO) data to transform current approaches to environmental decision making across urban greenspaces, agricultural management and biodiversity/habitat threats. The project involved demonstration pilots in which citizens used their own devices to supplement the existing monitoring through interactive reporting, gaming applications and mapathons. Some of the LandSense pilots focused on in-situ observations using mobile apps, whereas other pilots were centered around satellite-image interpretations during dedicated mapathons. Particular attention was given to quality assurance of citizen observations and defining methods for integrating citizen science data with authoritative LULC data.
iSQAPER Interactive Soil Quality Assessment in Europe and China for Agricultural Productivity and Environmental Resilience
The main aim of iSQAPER was to develop an interactive soil quality assessment tool (SQAPP) for agricultural land users that integrates newly derived process understanding and accounts for the impact of agricultural land use and management on soil properties and functions, and related ecosystem services. For this purpose, >30 long-term experimental field trials in the […]
