Spectroradiometric and Crop height data collected during field campaigns. This includes several visits to the field which must cover all the phenological stages of the plants.
At the same time meteorological data are collected automatically through the meteorological stations giving useful information related to the weather parameters of the last 24 hours such as the temperature, humidity, wind, precipitation, etc.
- Earth Observation Products:
The goal is the retrieval of evapotranspiration (ETc) maps based on the following equation:
ETc = f (albedo, CH, LAI & Meteorological)
Specific algorithms will be developed for each crop type. Furthermore, other EO products will be produced as intermediate steps to retrieve the final product such as CH, LAI and NDVI maps.
SWSOIP Platform consisting from 1) the Front–end system: which will enable the communication with the end-users (farmers) and 2) the Back–end system: where all the processing procedures will be taken place.
SWSOIP Back-end system will communicate both with the meteorological stations and the Smart CropWATER Valve through the WISENSE Platform which was developed and owned by SignalGenerix Ltd. The meteorological data will be collecting and input to the SWSOIP Back-end system and the output of the water demand for irrigation for each crop type and field will be the output of the SWSOIP Back-end which will be transferred through the WISENSE platform and operate the Smart CropWATER Valve. Furthermore, the output will be communicated to the end-users (farmers) through the CropWATER Mobile-App as SMS.
