Abstract

The use of satellite data for land management optimization is extremely powerful in low-income countries, where in situ measurements require costly and time-consuming solutions. In this paper we present the innovative results of a pilot-project that used high resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data for agriculture physical parameter retrieving. In particular, we present land use maps and a vegetation index evaluated at small scale, thank to the use of Cosmo-Skymed data.
