Title: Wheat Rust Early Warning System in Ethiopia – Using New Technologies to Combat Crop Disease
During his talk, Gerald will describe the existing early warning system and the planned development of additional, new components for enhancement based on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and remote sensing, such as UAV-based high throughput phenotyping for biotic stresses.
14:30 + Workshop Session (Webinars)
Workshop session A : Disease Risk Modeling and Visualization using R-INLA
In this workshop we will learn how to estimate disease risk and quantify risk factors using aerial and geostatistical data. We will also create interactive maps of disease risk and risk factors, and introduce presentation options such as interactive dashboards. We will work through two disease mapping examples using data of malaria in The Gambia and cancer in Pennsylvania, USA.
Workshop session B : Accessing, mapping, and exporting Nitrogen Dioxide data on Google Earth Engine
In this workshop, we will cover how to access the air pollution data collected by the TROPOMI orbital sensor on Google Earth Engine, with an emphasis on nitrogen dioxide measurement, which has been used in many media examples as a proxy for mapping the intensity of activities during pandemic and lockdown periods.
Workshop session C : Open source based image analysis of multispectral UAV data based on QGIS and OBIA workflows
In this workshop, we will demonstrate the analysis of UAV-based multispectral MICASENSE data (5 band MS camera) along the QGIS and OTB workline. Unsupervised (K-means) and OBIA-based (random forest) supervised classification processes of typical indices (NDVI, SAVI, Soil_RI) will be explained, calculated and evaluated. The exercise data and videos will be provided afterwards to support the self-study-potentials of the participients.
