In 2016, the third European Sentinel satellite added to the growing array of earth-observing instruments offering greater open data based information, aimed at helping to counter environmental damage and mitigate against climate change.
Using an array of information and years of research, crop yields can be increased while reducing fertilizer costs and saving water. Taking advantage of open data, the SMART! system is designed to offer precise nutrient formulations, regulate fertilizer amounts and offer directions on mixing and applying fertilizers.
During the recently held 'Africa Open Data Conference', Accra, Ghana (17-21 July 2017), the GODAN Action project team took part in several events, including the 'Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition', workshop lead by CTA.
This is the second edition of the INSPIRE Hack, i.e. a hackathon that is part of the INSPIRE Conference 2017 . The INSPIRE Hack focuses on methods where citizens are able to contribute to different environmental and societal issues through smart phones and other sensors.
COMING SOON! A free e-learning programme on open data is going to help strengthen the capacity of data producers and data consumers to manage and use open data in agriculture and nutrition. This course is developed as part of the capacity development activities within the GODAN Action project and will start in autumn 2017.
