WatchITgrow
Service
WatchITgrow is an online platform to support growers to monitor arable crops and vegetables in view of increasing yields, both qualitatively and quantitatively. WatchITgrow uses various types of data starting with satellite data combined with e.g. weather data, soil data, IoT data and field data provided by the grower. These data will be combined using new technologies such as big data analytics and machine learning to provide growers with more timely and personalized advice.

Agro industry
Success story
Providing services able to support agriculture activities to resist and adapt to climate change and at the same time ensuring the increase of productivity in a sustainable manner. Showcasing that Copernicus data sets combined with the necessary in-situ data (collected based on information collected from farm machines, industry experts and field sensors), weather and soil data can deliver improved information for-and deliver economic value to European agricultural industry and farmers. The concept is built upon a smart combination of in situ, weather and EO data. Data collected in the GEOGLAM pilot of the Agricultural showcase will be adapted to address the needs of the agro industry.
Company: VITO
Proposal: The service aims at supporting agriculture activities to resist and adapt to climate change and at the same time ensuring the increase of productivity in a sustainable manner. The provision of improved indicators for agricultural monitoring based on in situ, meteo, soil and RS data, addresses the needs of agro industry and farmers. The tool supports agro consultants in their advice to farmers and demonstrate methodologies implementable at field level.

GEOGLAM
Success story
The aim is to demonstrate how Copernicus data can be used, in combination with other ancillary datasets (in situ data, static maps,…), to provide improved indicators for agricultural monitoring in an operational setting. Through previous discussions with and among the end users, the EAV (essential Agricultural Variable) crop calendar was identified as a suitable showcase, given its relevance in many monitoring systems, while it is currently not available at the Sentinel 1&2 resolution and at a larger scale. We will build on existing methodologies that are currently incorporated in different operational services, but with further improvements and adaptations that will be required to tackle issues that arise when monitoring agricultural areas at such a high resolution. On the other hand, because of the high resolution, parcel-level monitoring now becomes feasible in many regions of the world. This parcel-level monitoring has many advantages, which open up opportunities to also improve the definition of crop calendars with EO data.
Date: January 26, 2022
Company: VITO
Proposal: Building on existing operational tools and modifying them to meet the specific user needs of the GEOGLAM community. Integrating the above mentioned datasets with the Copernicus DIAS storage and processing power. This will allow the monitoring of several essential climate variables (e.g. LAI) and the development of agricultural metrics that are more quantitative and look beyond the current growing season as requested by the GEOGLAM community represented by the GEOGLAM secretariat.

Parcel change detection in the Netherlands
Success story
The Dutch paying agency, RVO (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland), is required to maintain the registration of agricultural parcels in the LPIS (Land Parcel Information System). The process of keeping the registration up to date with the actual situation in the field is a challenge, as annually 5 to 10% of the parcel geometries change. An automated change signalling service is required to speed up the process of manually checking aerial imagery for changes in geometry of the parcels.
Company: NEO
Proposal: The service automatically checks satellite imagery time series and delivers a classification of parcels in line with the requirements. Additionally a dataset of 2D geometries of suspected changes, including properties of the change signal such as nature of change (e.g. building, water, vegetation) and date of change is delivered to add further efficiency to the process of updating the geometries of the parcels, in order to comply with LPIS requirements.
