EOTIME project

Optimization of water management in agriculture by means of Earth observation (EO) data and the interactive networking/connecting capabilities of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
Improving the technical, environmental and socio-economic performance of irrigation schemes is possible and fundamental in water-scarce environments.

The project EOTIME using EO- and ICT-assisted integrated systems and services will set the basis for integrated water resources management of river basins, irrigation schemes, and farms. This set of systems and services will also be the basis for technical and social learning that enables farmers to act responsibly by fine-tuning their on-farm irrigation management in accordance with the river-basin water status and management decisions.
