Ground-truthing Services

With influx of remote sensing technology and unmanned aerial vehicle surveys, it is imperative to support the data so acquired with adequate ground-truthing findings. Ground-truthing activities are an integral part of the “multi” approach in the domain of agriculture. Whether it is implementation of any schemes, roll-out of any programs, execution of any projects or performance of any activity; it is inevitable to augment ground-truthing capabilities and capacities. Direct human observation is a particularly effective ground–truthing method and is most often used in agriculture.

DAS through its learning centres, makes it possible to have a perennial access to trained manpower and offers ground-truthing services with ‘scale-up’ and ‘scale-down’ agility.

Types of ground-truthing services are:

  • Surveys
  • Loss Assessments
  • Witnessing
