In this work we tested consistency and reliability of satellite-derived Prescription Maps (PMs) respect to those that can be obtained by aerial imagery. Test design considered a vineyard of Moscato Reale sited in Apulia (South-Eastern Italy) and two growing seasons (2013 and 2014). Comparisons concerned Landsat 8 OLI images and aerial datasets from...

The Sentinel-2 data by European Space Agency were recently made available for free. Their technical features suggest synergies with Landsat-8 dataset by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), especially in the agriculture context were observations should be as dense as possible to give a rather complete description of macro-phenology...

Vegetation indices represent an effective and widely used tool for monitoring vegetation changes in time and space. Unfortunately, in many works index uncertainty is not reported, making interpretation unreliable. In this paper we propose an operational approach for estimating NDVI uncertainty, based on the propagation of variance of factors defini...

Chapter
In urban planning, a numerical and spatially based approach is expected to drive to the “best” choice. In this work a GIS-based procedure is proposed to model territorial dynamics by comparing maps of two different periods (1830 and 2000). The study area is located in the urban fringe of Torino (NW Italy) that suffered from important changes especi...

Riassunto Il monitoraggio attraverso tecnologie di rilevamento remoto del territorio, è considerata un'attività strategica dei consorzi di bonifica, in quanto permette di sviluppare programmi di controllo sull'utilizzo delle risorse idriche, sull'individuazione di eventuali punti di dispersione nella rete di distribuzione e sul monitoraggio dello s...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Nowadays remote sensing techniques are widely used in agricultural applications due to the high availability of free pre-processed dataset, leading to the development of monitoring services (web or standalone). The management and monitoring of agricultural areas by Regional and European Administration is currently based on a sub-division of territ...
Article
A time series of Landsat 8 OLI (L8 OLI) multispectral images acquired between May 2013 and February 2016 were used to investigate vigour, vine and soil water content in a vineyard of Moscato Reale (syn. Moscato Bianco) sited in the Castel del Monte DOCG area. Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and Normalized Difference Water Index (NDWI)...
Article
A time series of Landsat 8 OLI multispectral images acquired in the period May 2013 - February 2016 was used to investigate vineyard behaviour in terms of vigour and water content. The study site was located in the Castel del Monte DOCG area; a ‘Moscato Reale’ (syn. ‘Moscato Bianco’) vineyard was analysed. Normalized difference vegetation index (ND...

La sperimentazione su mais da insilato ha permesso di mettere a punto una tecnica di fertirrigazione ottimale, riducendo del 50% l' apporto di azoto in copertura e aumentando dall' 11 al 25% la quota di azoto in fertirrigazione, mantenendo l' elevato livello produttivo e incrementando l' efficienza d' uso dell' azoto. http://www.informatoreagrario...

Full-text available
Aerial LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) derived data are widely adopted for the study and characterization of forests. In particular, LiDAR derived-CHM (Canopy Height Model) has proved essential in identifying tree height variability and estimating many forest features such as biomass and wood volume. However, CHM quality may be affected by inte...
