|Title||Monitoring sugarcane using TerraSAR-X data integrated in the Kalideos Isle-Réunion database|
|Investigator||SELLE, Arnaud - CNES, DCT/SI/AP|
|Summary||The present proposal aims at enhancing the current content of the Kalideos Reference Remote Sensing Databases through the collection of TerraSAR-X data on the existing sites, to make these data available to authorised scientists for research activities and the development of new applications.|
Kalideos databases provide temporal series of optical and radar satellite images together with exogenous and ground truth data (maps, physical parameters, land occupation, etc.). Free access to their content is granted to scientists for research and educational purposes only, while the highest quality pre-processing (registration, ortho-rectification, absolute calibration, inter-calibration, etc.) is guaranteed. All the related information, as well as the data included, can be accessed through the Kalideos Web site (http://kalideos.cnes.fr).
The Kalideos concept, defined by CNES in 2000, has many benefits:
The detailed methodology depends on the considered thematic field as the image characteristics are not the same in all cases. In the case of this study focusing on sugarcane monitoring, geocoding and calibration will be at the heart of the selected approach to prepare the extraction and the analysis of crop parameters.
The project deliverables will include annual synthesis reports prepared by CNES in the frame of the Kalideos programme, together with the scientific publications related to the use and analysis of the delivered TerraSAR-X data.
Basing upon the experience formerly acquired in the frame of Kalideos, CNES is quite confident in the capacity of innovation of the involved scientist and convinced that the new datasets provided by the TerraSAR-X system, combined with existing optical and SAR images series as well as ground data, will help to improve significantly current research programs.
No external funding is required to support the activities planned in the frame of this project. CNES has already supported the Kalideos programme for several years and intends to keep the same strategy as it is in line with the implementation of the GMES programme and the corresponding services. From his side, the scientist acting as co-investigator is also involved in applied research programmes which will help him in the achievement of his task.
