ESA DUE GeoRice
The GeoRice project addresses research priorities within the Group of Earth Observation Global Agricultural Monitoring (GEOGLAM) initiative related to rice monitoring. The aim of the project is to demonstrate large scale rice monitoring in Vietnam, Lao, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar using Sentinel-1 satellite data.
The project is funded by the European Spatial Agency under ESA Contract No. 4000113388/15/I-NB and has been extended from October 2018 for 18 months. The Prime Contractor is the Université Toulouse III - Paul Sabatier
The Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency of Thailand (GISTDA) has selected Airbus as partner for its next-generation national geo-information system, including Earth Observation satellites, capacity building and integrated geo-information platform. THEOS-2 is an optical satellite system delivering images with a ground resolution of 0.5 meter, scheduled to be launched in 2020.
Airbus will develop six application workshops in Thailand, including the Agriculture and Food Security, and the Natural Resources and Ecosystem application workshops.
As part of this program, GlobEO was selected as a contributor by providing methods for rice and forest monitoring and associated trainings. Image credit: Airbus
