The Sentinels for Common Agricultural Policy - Sen4CAP project aims at providing the European and national stakeholders of the CAP with validated algorithms, products, workflows and best practices for agriculture monitoring relevant for the management of the CAP. The project pays particular attention to providing evidence on how Sentinel-derived information can support the modernization and simplification of the CAP in the post-2020 timeframe.
The project is developing an open-source system able to automatically ingest and process Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 and Landsat 8 time series in a seamless way to derive four products: (i) crop type maps, (ii) grassland mowing detection products, (iii) agricultural practices monitoring product focusing on the detection of harvests, catch crops, nitrogen-fixing crops and land-lying fallows, and (iv) biophysical indicators.
Sen4CAP has been setup by the European Space Agency in direct collaboration and on request of DG-Agri, DG-Grow and DG-JRC. It also involves seven Paying Agencies (Czech Republic, France, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Spain and Romania) acting as pilot countries.
Sen4CAP ready to use solution on CREODIAS
The Sen4CAP software is available on CREODIAS cloud environment as an easy to run image. When this image is installed on a CREODIAS Virtual Machine, any user can run the Sen4CAP software, benefitting both from direct access to the complete Copernicus Sentinel satellite data repository and dynamically scalable processing opportunities of the CREODIAS cloud computing environment.
In order to meet the needs of Paying Agencies and the companies supporting them, we advise on the choice of the size of the environment and provide support in terms of substantive knowledge about Sen4CAP software itself and the use of satellite data in it. Thanks to the customer support and constant contact with the users of our service, we consult with software manufacturers on all the information obtained in order to develop it continuously.
Contact with us and join the group of Sen4CAP users who have taken their agricultural crop monitoring to a higher level.
