3edata offers data capture and processing services for the assessment of damage to forest and agricultural crops.


After the appearance of a symptom of damage caused by a specific pathogen, a data capture schemecan be carried out to define the affected area, establish a protocol for monitoring the evolution of the damage before treatment and a protocol for assessing the effectiveness of the treatments.


Based on a map of target species coverage, sufficiently precise to isolate the leaf area occupied by the species to be monitored, the spectral images are classified at pixel level according to the probability of damage. This requires classification algorithms adapted to each crop species.


This type of procedure is applied in agricultural crops, such as vineyards, or in the case of forestry plantations. It is in the forestry sector where 3edata is making a greater effort in product development, especially in the monitoring of quarantine pests.


In the most complex cases of quarantine pests in forest plantations, the service includes the identification of the area occupied by the species affected by the pest and the segmentation of canopies, differentiating the tree canopy from the shrub and herbaceous canopy. This procedure allows the classification of each canopy according to the probability of damage and to define its extent. The final report could be generated at crown or stand level.


Another service possibility is the assessment of the effectiveness of the treatments, for which 3edata carries out an analysis of the evolution of the damage through the multi-temporal analysis of multi-spectral images (from drones or satellites). It is also possible to prepare reports on the execution of quarantine pest control work (cutting and elimination of remains); support for the planning of field sampling and sample collection; prospecting in large or difficult to access areas; and the use of the data to assess the effectiveness of treatments.
