Concerning the CAP-reform and the accession of several new
EU-countries, SAGACAP wants to generalize and optimize EUROSENSE’s
agricultural control-service to make it applicable to the new market
SAGACAP wants to generalize EUROSENSE’s
well-developed agricultural control workflow to make it more generic
and widely applicable. With the change of CAP-regulations (Common
Agricultural Policy) and the accession of several new EU countries,
timing is ideal for the creation of a generic service and specific
products. SAGACAP wants to anticipate on this new market situation and
is therefore a typical EO-market generation project.
Main issue of SAGACAP, is to generalize and optimize the agricultural
control workflow, according to the CAP-reform and the new geographic
conditions in accession EU-countries. Besides the control (by remote
sensing) of area and land use also the several new measures of the
cross-compliance have to be taken in account. The goal is to construct
a reliable agricultural control-service as generic as possible, so it
can operate in different geographical areas, taking in account
different environmental conditions, according to different national
interpretations and legislations and with different types of
input-data. The challenge is to develop and examine technical solutions
for the control-service to make this possible.
SAGACAP is a project under the EOMD-programme of ESA, “Earth Observation Market Development”.
