On 22-23 of October in Kiev, Ukraine a Joint Workshop “Information Needs in Crop Monitoring” funded by European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and co-funded by the UN-SPIDER office of UNOOSA was held.  Representatives from institutional users in Ukraine and neighboring countries,  governmental representatives from the EU and technology experts from neighboring countries, international programmes and European institutions participated.

At the meeting of governmental representatives with Ukrainian and international experts in agricultural monitoring domain it was  discussed how actual requirements for information on agricultural statistics, crop monitoring and crop production can be threated with modern satellite based technologies.

Feasibility of specific future actions under national, bi-lateral or joint collaboration, as well as identification of common research and development needs and possible funding mechanisms were discussed.

As a result of the symposium it was decided to launch a pilot project for satellite Agromonitoring of Ukraine within the Sentinel4Agri project «Sentinel-2 for Agriculture» of Horizon-2020 program participated by representatives of UN-SPIDER RSO in Ukraine.



Fourth International Conference on “Earth Observations for Sustainable Development and Security” GEO-UA 2014 has been held in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Experts from UN-SPIDER RSO in Ukraine developed new methodologies to flood hazard mapping from satellite data. The first approach envisages statistical processing of time-series of Landsat-5 and Landsat-7 images to derive a probability of inundation map over the region of interest.

The second approach is targeted for event-specific flood hazard mapping. It utilizes neural networks to produce a posteriori probability of the area being inundated.
