Student's research results on VHR RS in agriculture available through STARS knowledge portal

Earlier we published the theses of four MSc students who conducted research in the STARS domain. Now we have added the work of three University of Wageningen students: Joël Davidse, Bastiaen Boekelo and Bart Driessen. They address the following topics:

  • Joël's research investigates the possibility of using very high resolution imagery from the WorldView-2 satellite sensor for field boundary detection in Sougoumba, Mali.
  • In Bart's study, stratification methods based on unsupervised classification of MODIS time-series imagery were compared to stratification methods based on detailed soil- and elevation maps.
  • The main goal of Bastiaen's internship was to explore the potential of UAV technology to monitor crop growth through time and to quantify the effect of the different fertilizer treatments.

Summaries of all theses are now available, including*1 direct access to the full-text version of each thesis.
