Crop Observe App is an application for collecting crop type, phenological stage, visible damage and management practices.
The e-shape CropObserve mobile application was developed to allow anyone to observe agricultural fields anywhere. The app is focused on collecting crop type, phenological stage, visible damage and management practices. Similar locations may be revisited to track changes over time. Geo-tagged photos can also be collected to document the observation. The collected data will be used to train and validate models and algorithms to assess crop production including aspects related to area and yields e.g., crop maps, phenology, biomass, etc. Data will be made freely available in the NEXTGEOSS Spatial Temporal Attribute Catalogue for Agronomy AgroSTAC. By collecting data you are helping to improve the quality of agricultural monitoring.
The e-shape project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement 820852.
