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.

Automatic CRP mapping using nonparametric machine learning approaches


This paper studies an uneven two-class unsupervised classification problem of satellite imagery, i.e., the mapping of U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) tracts. CRP is a nationwide program that encourages farmers to plant long-term, resource conserving covers to improve soil, water, and wildlife resources. With recent payments of nearly US $1.6 billion for new enrollments (2002 signup), it is imperative to obtain accurate digital CRP maps for management and evaluation purposes. CRP mapping is a complex classification problem where both CRP and non-CRP areas are composed of various cover types. Two nonparametric machine learning approaches, i.e., decision tree classifier (DTC) and support vector machine (SVMs) are implemented in this work. Specifically, considering the importance of CRP classification sensitivity, a new DTC pruning method is proposed to increase recall. We also study two SVM relaxation approaches to increase recall. Moreover, a localized and parallel framework is suggested in order to efficiently deal with the large-scale CRP mapping need. Simulation results validate the applicability of the suggested framework and proposed techniques.
