The regional office UNSIPER support for Colombia RSO - IGAC in collaboration with the Colombian Corporation for Agricultural Research “CORPOICA” show the paper called: "Using satellite images to identify areas affected by drought" at the international seminar: ADAPTATION AGRICULTURAL SECTOR TO CLIMATE CHANGE AND VARIABILITY, which includes the participation of international speakers from Germany, Austria, Chile and Panama; and the participation of national entities. The event is organized by the Research and the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences at the University of Cundinamarca (Colombia) and will be held on 5 to 9 October.
The main goal is to expose the use of spectral indices such as EVI, NDVI, VCI and DNDVI obtained from satellite multispectral images in determining abnormalities associated with dry conditions weather events.
The main topics are:
- Climate change and its impact on the agricultural sector.
- Early warning systems.
- Applications of Geomatics in: Precision agriculture, climate change, natural hazards and risk management.
