Use cases and landscaping study

The STARS project has three use cases: 

  1. In West Africa, Mali and Nigeria, concurrent remote sensing of land tenure in 20+ communities, and 150 individual farmer fields explores ways in which data can lead to the emergence of smallholder-friendly advisory services.

  2. In East Africa, Tanzania and Uganda, the STARS consortium is monitoring four separate, large blocks of croplands to provide data to the National Food security to support monitoring crop condition. Read more...
  3. The third project is in South Asia, Bangladesh, where remote sensing data is used to analyse the floodplain of the Bengal Delta to determine whether farmers can be allowed to use surface water to grow a second crop in the dry season.

Complementary to the regional experimental use cases, a technical and institutional landscaping study of remote sensing investment opportunities aims to identify the entry points in agro-information systems where remote sensing can help to transform agricultural development. It will provide guidance on potential future investments and the pathways to do so. The landscaping study takes a broader perspective of the reasoning behind the regional experiments, looking at the full gamut of stakeholders and technological offerings.
