Collaboration:

The Tocantins site collaborates on the JECAM experiment protocol for the experiment on sources intercomparison and large areas mapping. The objective is to compare different input data sources (in-situ, crowd-source, landcover-derived) to assess their accuracy and see applicability for regional large-scale cropland mapping across the globe.

To this date, the nomenclature of the in situ data collected from the 2015-2016 growing season for the Tocantins site has been adapted following the protocol established for the JECAM experiment and a new expanded site area (of 300kmx300km) has been proposed for further cropland mapping tests.
