SATELLITE AGROMONITORING IN UKRAINE: RESULTS OF SENTINEL-2 FOR AGRICULTURE PROJECT AND FURTHER PROSPECTS

In this article, the state of current research in Ukraine in the field of applied problems of Earth observations is analyzed in the context of participation of Ukraine in demonstration project of European Space Agency Sentinel-2 for Agriculture (Sen2-Agri), participation in SIGMA Project of 7th Framework Programme supported by European Commission, participation in JECAM experiment and crop monitoring GEOGLAM initiative of GEO group. The main scientific problem is the large amount of geospatial and satellite data, whose processing require the development of modern methods and technologies for automated high performance processing. New results in the domain of satellite agromonitoring, yield forecasting, gross yield evaluation for major crops as well as fruitful cooperation with European partners are opening new opportunities for innovative development of our country in the future.

Keywords: satellite monitoring, big data, data analysis, international cooperation, GEO, GEOGLAM, JECAM.

Language of article: ukrainian
