SIGMA photographic observatory launched

List of all the Sigma news


​The SIGMA photographic observatory is developed to monitor the evolution of landscapes using photgraphs.

To characterize and follow the evolution of the agricultural landscapes, photography is an interesting media for its ease of access and dissemination. Furthermore it is easy to geolocate the photos with widely used tools as GPS receivers.
In the framework of the SIGMA project, this photographic observatory will try to answer two objectives:

  • Set-up simple methodologies for photo shooting, to observe the development of a single landscape through time.
