DESCRIPTION
  • The development of this online tool shall be carried out through the services of an external consultant whose task shall be to develop an online tool which is capable to download,

  • process and analyse the Sentinel 2 imagery and allow the generation of meaningful information through the application of the Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI).

EXPECTED RESULTS
  • This action shall provide a new approach towards the management of agricultural water demand which moves away from the more traditional methods of managing water demand in the agricultural sector. This shall be achieved through the development of an online

  • based tool which makes use of the freely available Copernicus imagery. The result of this action could also provide added scope for the provision of additional downstream services to the ones already available through the Copernicus programme.

Take a look at the Deliverables for this action.
