e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Extreme Learning Machine-based Crop Classification using ALOS/PALSAR Images


Classification maps are required for agricultural management and the estimation of agricultural disaster compensation. The extreme learning machine (ELM), a newly developed single hidden layer neural network is used as a supervised classifier for remote sensing classifications. In this study, the ELM was evaluated to examine its potential for multi-temporal ALOS/PALSAR images for the classification of crop type. In addition, the k-nearest neighbor algorithm (k-NN), one of the traditional classification methods, was also applied for comparison with the ELM. In the study area, beans, beets, grasses, maize, potato, and winter wheat were cultivated; and these crop types in each field were identified using a data set acquired in 2010. The result of ELM classification was superior to that of k-NN; and overall accuracy was 79.3%. This study highlights the advantages of ALOS/PALSAR images for agricultural field monitoring and indicates the usefulness of regular monitoring using the ALOS-2/PALSAR-2 system.
