Agro-geoinformation, the agricultural-related geoinformation, is the key information in the agricultural decision making and policy formulation process. Recent advances in geoinformatics have created new opportunities and challenges in applying agro-geoinformation to agriculture monitoring and assessment. The Second International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics (Agro-geoinformatics 2013) provides an ideal venue for professionals and students to exchange ideas, research results, and professional experiences on collecting (including remote sensing and field survey), processing, storing, archiving, preserving, retrieving, transmitting, accessing, visualizing, analyzing, synthesizing, presenting, utilizing, and disseminating agro-geoinformation.

Topics include:

  • Cropland evapotranspiration, soil moisture, and drought monitoring and assessment
  • Remote-sensing based agricultural disaster monitoring, assessment, and mitigation
  • Global climate and environment change and its impacts on agriculture and food security
  • Weather information representation, analysis and application for agriculture
  • Water resource planning and management, irrigation and water usage
  • Agricultural environment and public health
  • Geospatial Sensor Web and its application in agriculture
  • Wildfire and burnt area mapping
