Agriculture & Land Management

The monitoring of agriculture, land use and land cover is essential for the planning and evaluation of agronomic policy, food management and informing appropriate land management decision making.

Telespazio supports private and public sector organisations, including administrations, assurance companies and farming associations, as well as organisations operating in industrial and natural resource environments. To ensure timely and informed decision making at regional or local scale, Telespazio utilises a wealth of remotely sensed data across a range of spatial, spectral and temporal resolutions.

Case Study

To guarantee a correct supply of CAP funds, the Italian Agency AGEA uses a complex GIS that collects data on the national agricultural territory and from the agricultural producers. The Copernicus satellite constellation (Sentinel) is opening new approaches for a systematic monitoring of the agronomic parcels, allowing semi-automatic check of the overall crop declaration correctness and of the environmental protection applied.

An operational pilot has been successfully performed over Foggia province (south of Italy), automatically processing more than 450,000 agricultural parcels, using more than 200 Sentinel images collected in 2017 and 2018.

The processing workflow is based on information extraction in terms of “activity markers” obtained by the processing of satellite time series. In order to support the workflow, satellite data are pre-processed through the elimination of all atmospheric disturbances and clouds, and radiometric normalisation. Data is stored as a Data Cube, ensuring efficient usage as input to information extraction procedures.
