ENVISION aims to fulfil the need for continuous and systematic monitoring of agricultural land, shifting the focus from fragmented monitoring limited to specific fields and dates to territory-wide and all-year-round monitoring. It will make use of heterogeneous types of available data and state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies for providing a fully-automated and scalable toolbox of services, built in close interaction with its future customers.
ENVISION will fully exploit the wealth of data made available through GEOSS and Copernicus and its synergetic use with other data to develop data products such as: Cultivated crop type maps; Soil Organic Carbon; Vegetation status; Crop growth (distinction of organic – conventional farming); Grassland mowing/ploughing; Soil erosion. The ENVISION toolbox will be comprised of: a monitoring service of sustainable agricultural practices, tools that PAs & CBs can provide to farmers for adhering to environmentally friendly agricultural practices, an Add-on Development Tool.
The project consortium consists of Cyprus Agriculture Payments Organization (CAPO), Draxis Environmental, Etam S.A., Inosens doo Novi Sad, Institute for Agriculture and Fisheries Research (ILVO), ITC – Innovation Technology Cluster Murska Sobota, Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF), National Observatory of Athens, National Paying Agency, Organic Control System doo, Vlaamse Gewest, The University of Reading and Agroapps.

|ENVISION will have three categories of business cases and will also be tested by a group of Lighthouse Customers|
Within ENVISION InoSens will be actively involved in the identification, collection and exploitation of all available ancillar datasets which will assist to calibrate, validate and and feed ENVISION’s processing algorithms to attain the highest information quality possible (WP3 – Earth Observation data products). INOS will also be part of the business cases planning and will support the Serbian business cases activities related to organic farming/ certification and monitoring, as well as will be involved in the evaluation phase of the business cases and the add-on development showcases and capacity building (WP5 – Business cases implementation and evaluation). Furthermore, InoSens will participate in the commercialisation and exploitation of the ENVISION services and products (WP6 – Commercialisation and exploitation) and in the communication and dissemination of the project’s result through WP7 – Dissemination and Communication.
