China - Anhui

Project Overview

The mapping resolution is 1:50,000 scale.

Timeliness (with regards to growing season): in April to October.

The current project phase is research and operational pilot.

Crop identification and Crop Area Estimation

  • determine to what level of accuracy Radarsat-2 can classify crops with different cropping system in China
  • determine whether Radarsat-2 data alone can produce classification accuracies targeted by CAAE (overall and individual accuracies of 90%) at the early stages of the growing season
  • develop comprehensive algorithms using Radarsat-2 in combination with other data resources in the operational crop monitoring system.

Crop biophysical parameters estimation

  • Leaf area index monitoring using Radarsat-2 images at regional scale
