ILMO is a recently completed two-year project that attempted to map agricultural land
use change for the accounting of GHG exchanges. Using new OSI mapping products
(Prime 2) and novel optical and radar satellite techniques, land use categories have
been assigned to individual fields. The workshop will present the new methodologies,
maps for the trial counties of Sligo and Longford and outline the next steps for
landcover/landuse research in Ireland with the launch of the TaLAM (Toward
Landcover Accounting and Monitoring) project.
The workshop is aimed towards those with an interest in:
• Mapping agriculture
• Land use and land use change
• Remote Sensing techniques for overcoming cloudy conditions
• GHG accounting
The workshop is limited to a maximum of 45 participants.
Partners of the EPA funded Irish Land Mapping Observatory (ILMO) project will hold a
workshop discussing their final results at the Teagasc Kildalton College campus
(Piltown, Co. Kilkenny) from
10:00 – 14:00 on Friday, 20th June 2014.
