Earth Observation for Future Agriculture: from Data to Services

The Special Issue is intended to collect high-level contributions providing an exhaustive overview of the ongoing geomatics-related technology transfer into the agricultural sector. Contributions from authors should not report only simple case studies, but more properly highlight opportunities, limitations, and criticalities still persisting in this context, with special concern about actual and potential services to farmers. The following themes are warmly encouraged:

  • Design and implementation of institutional services for agriculture (controls and management) based on satellite/aerial/UAV data with special concerns about image time series and monitoring instances (EO Browser, OneSoil, CropMoitoring-EoS, etc.);
  • Technical criticalities/limitations/potentialities and possible solutions related to the integration of new low-cost ground sensors (e.g., agro-meteorological sensors networks) with remotely sensed imagery to provide operational services for farmers;
  • Remote sensing data processing for agronomic information retrieval (both qualitative and quantitative). Works presenting procedures to validate prescription maps and criteria definition to derive reliable intensity rates of agronomic interventions from RS data are encouraged;
  • Economical evaluations concerning costs of RS, actual, and forecasted income improvements in the agriculture sector, potential market of web-based services;
  • Artificial-Intelligence-based platforms supporting spatial applications in agriculture; DIAS, HPC and IOT in agriculture;
  • Standardization of processes and outputs.

All other issues related to the adoption of remote sensing in the agriculture sector will be evaluated, as well.

This special issue is promoted by the Agriculture Special Interest Group of EARSeL the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (
