Abstract

ISAC project aims to develop and demonstrate three generic services for providing timely, objective and detailed information on crop growth and development and on crop damage due to extreme weather conditions such as drought. The project thereby addresses the needs of the commercial insurance sector in Europe and the food security sector in Africa (as input for early warning and micro-insurances). To this aim images from optical high resolution (20-30m) satellite sensors such as DMC/Deimos-1 and Landsat-TM/ETM+ are used, whereas traditionally such services make use of frequently available medium to low resolution images (250m up to 1km). This communication provides a meaningful overview of the key aspects of ISAC services collection, namely its objectives, the consortium partners, the users, the main features of the services, including the service portfolio, as well as the demonstration activities.
