Exploring agro-geoinformation for the United States using the FAIR cyberinformatics tools

Cyberinformatics is a critical way to provide timely decision makings in geoscience and remote sensing applications. A cyberinformatics tool based on the Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable (FAIR) data principle is essential for the distribution of geoinformation and Earth observation (EO) data. This webinar presents an overview of the FAIR cyberinformatics tools to support sustainable agricultural systems. We will review the design, implementation, and applications of state-of-the-art geospatial data service systems, including CropScape, VegScape, Crop-CASMA, and iCrop. According to a large number of use cases and feedback, these cyberinformatics tools can efficiently and effectively support decision makings to agricultural sectors by providing a variety of agro-geoinformation, such as crop-specific land cover, vegetation index, and soil moisture data, based on the FAIR data principle.


Dr. Chen Zhang is a research assistant professor at the Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems of George Mason University. He received his Ph.D. in Earth Systems and Geoinformation Science from George Mason University in 2021. Dr. Zhang is an active advocate of applying state-of-the-art methods, technologies, and tools in multidisciplinary fields to discover, understand, and share agro-geoinformation. His research mainly focuses on geoinformatics, land use land cover mapping, geospatial information interoperability, and environmental modeling.
