Agriculture and spatialised information

Spatialised information plays an important role in all decision-making related to agricultural production and the environment, from the decisions taken by an individual farmer (where to treat? which plots to replant?, etc.) to the definition of global strategies of large agricultural corporate houses or entire regions (what impact of a crop system on pollution? what impact of climate change on production? data labelling and geotraceability).

Support for decision-making in pursuit of sustainable development of agriculture and water resources requires characterisation and monitoring products and tools that can be used over a wide scale, from individual compartments to whole agricultural regions.

Research axes in the geomatics domain

Faced with this requirement, the in-situ acquisition of data, with onboard sensors (satellite, aerial, on drones, on agricultural machines, even portable ones on operators, etc.), the translation of these variables into relevant information for the professionals and those in the production chain (land-use maps, monitoring of harvests, detection of anomalies in growth, etc.),  and the representation and the distribution of this information for helping emphasise space in decision-making all constitute important challenges for future agricultural research.


Project examples


Agrosystem approach :

- Family agriculture in Senegal
- Agroforestry in Vanuatu, in Bali
- Irrigated areas in Sudan
- Industrial plantations in Mauritius, in Sumatra

Produce-based approach :

- Sugarcane
- Banana
- Coffee
- Oil palm
- Vineyards, etc.
