Seminar by M. Neteler, 17 January 2012

The ENEA Technical Unit for Sustainable Development and Agro-industrial Innovation (UTAGRI) organized a seminar on "Geographic Free and Open Source Software for remote sensing and GIS: a toolbox for the GlobalChangeBiology project" by Dr. Markus Neteler, head of the GIS and Remote Sensing Unit at Fondazione Edmund Mach (Trento, Italy). The seminar highlighted a wide range of applications implemented via open source software such as remote sensing of biophysical parameters, landscape analysis, environmental modeling, geostatistics, geomorphology, machine learning, management of emerging infectious diseases, and others. Thanks to the GlobalChangeBiology project, ENEA deploys a unique technology in Europe that provides a sound scientific platform for laying out effective response strategies to global change in agriculture. Open source geospatial software is key to achieving a major goal of the GlobalChangeBiology project, namely to link agroecosystem analysis with remote sensing data so as to bridge the gap between bottom-up and top-down GIS approaches for assessing on-ground ecosystem-level problem.
