Agricultural production in the Mediterranean region is challenged by both climate change and socio-economic factors that might lead to accelerated land degradation and severe loss of ecosystem services. Climate change is likely to lead to increasing water stress in the region leading to drought related loss of agricultural production and [...]

Maps of the spatial distribution of crop heights can strongly support agriculture in terms of efficiency and yield optimization. Recently published results of experiments of the 3D Spatial Data Processing research group describe an approach to easily extend regular agricultural machines with low-cost sensors for capturing crop heights while the machine is in the field.
Based [...]

We cordially invite all interested to our forthcoming talk in the GIScience colloquium next Monday, January 16, on agricultural pest management solutions based on pest observations from farmers. Dr. Yingwei Yan reports on how sensemaking algorithms which can be used to evaluate this kind of volunteered geographic information, and to make forecasts of pest infestations provided [...]

We cordially invite all interested to our forthcoming talk in the GIScience colloquium next Monday, December 19, about the use of remote sensing techniques for assessing soil and crop properties for applications in agriculture. Dr. Thomas Jarmer combines quantitative field measurements with remote sensing imagery to achieve not only a qualitative, but a quantitative assessment [...]

In agriculture, information about the spatial distribution of crop height is valuable for applications such as biomass and yield estimation, or increasing field work efficiency in terms of fertilizing, applying pesticides, irrigation, etc. Established methods for capturing crop height often comprise restrictions in terms of cost and time efficiency, flexibility, and temporal and spatial resolution [...]

On 19th of June, a multitemporal data set of agricultural plants was completed by researchers of the Chair of GIScience’s LiDAR Research Group in the course of the projects Hyland and ESOB. A field of several grain varieties and fertilization quantities in maximum growth stage was captured in 3D using a terrestrial laser scanner (TLS). [...]
