CEUBIOM summary provided by Péter Gyuris GIS expert of Geonardo Ltd:
"With the advent of Earth Observation (EO) techniques in natural sciences, an increasing interest has been documented by experts for using these approaches in order to estimate the potential of biomass production for specific areas.
The combined use of EO-derived data with in-situ measurements based on common agricultural and forestry survey practices can be a powerful tool for assessing biomass potential.
The ambition of CEUBIOM project is to develop a Platform and a self-sustained e-service that will directly assist and train professionals from the EO, agricultural and EO/biomass sectors about the new, common and harmonised applications of EO and a better understanding of each other’s requirements.
