GLAM: Open EO for Agricultural Monitoring and Food Security
2021-10-01, 08:30–09:00, Group on Earth Observations

The new redesigned Global Agriculture Monitoring (GLAM) System is an open source web application providing earth observation capabilities to address food and agricultural security across the globe, enabling near-real-time monitoring of global croplands and allowing users to track crop conditions as growing seasons evolve. After years of operational use and valuable feedback from partners, the time came to redesign this system to be faster, more flexible, and to capitalize new datasets coming online and new computing architectures available. Collaborating with partners such as Conab (Brazil) and INTA (Argentina), the system has been even more refined and improved, spurring the development of regional and national interfaces, allowing for a more detailed analysis of crop conditions in these areas. The system has already been leveraged by organizations like the Buenos Aires Grain Exchange (Bolsa de Cereales) to identify potential crop impacts in Argentina.
