Operational Implementation Plans

The mapping resolution is 30 metres.

Timeliness (with regards to growing season): in 1 – 2 months.

The current project phase is research and operational pilot.

Plans for the Next Growing Season:

We have some additional measurements compared with that in 2012, including land surface temperature, soil water content, leaf water content and nitrogen content of crop canopy and etc. In 2014 and the future, we will measure same variables same as that in 2013.

In 2013, we acquired some high resolution optical images, such as Rapideye and Spot-4 images over the same study site through ‘TAKE-5’ plan. We anticipate ordering some Rapideye, UK-DMC2 and other high resolution images in 2014 and the future continuously.
