Collaboration:

1. SIGMA - JECAM experiment on medium to large field size agrosystems

The main objective of this project is to test and compare classification methods for cropland area estimations based on MODIS data, and applied in different contrasted sites. These sites were selected within JECAM for their large field size agrosystems. The nature of the collaboration for the Brazil-SP site relies on data preparation and share, field expertise, review of the results obtained in this experiment, complementary measurements, reviewing the paper, etc. A paper was accepted on this work :

Waldner, F., De Abelleyra, D., Verón, S.R., Zhang, M., Wu, B., Plotnikov, D., Bartalev, S., Lavreniuk, M., Skakun, S., Kussul, N., Le Maire, G., Dupuy, S., Jarvis, I. & Defourny, P. (2016) Towards a set of agrosystem-specific cropland mapping methods to address the global cropland diversity. International Journal of Remote Sensing, 37, 3196-3231.

Another work at a larger scale is ongoing.

 

2. SIGMA - JECAM experiment on tropical agrosystems :

This work is led by CIRAD and aims at testing a common methodologies for the tropical sites of JECAM for agriculture mapping, based on Sentinel and SPOT dataset. This study is ongoing and first results should come by middle of 2017. Tharea are 4 sites clearly involved, and  other which will probably participate.
