Taiwan-TARI

Overview

This project is conducted by the Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute (TARI) and Center for Space and Remote Sensing Research (CSRSR), National Central University, Taiwan. The studies will be based on the following statement:

Crop identification and acreage estimation: Estimates are required end-of-season. An early inseason estimate is desirable.
Residue and Tillage mapping/ Soil moisture/ Crop biophysical variables (LAI): So far, these factors have not yet been observed. In the future, these factors will be observed.

The mapping resolution is 20m. The timeliness (with regards to growing season) varies depending on the mapping activity
