Usability of the Database
How can YOU use the Global Vegetation Database 3.0?
Farming cooperationsInformation and decision support systems enable farmers to predict yields. They are able to improve their income by measuring the exact needs for the crops and irrigation advise.
WaterboardsWater management of the region (monitoring), early warning of drought and floods (monitoring), operational support with the water supply in the region.
NGOsNon-profit organizations can help by monitoring the crops and warn for drought or rain. They are able to support farmers or governments with objective data.
Government agenciesMonitor or manage the ecosystems in their territory e.g. efficient use of their natural resources and monitor the uptake of carbon dioxide. They can also modernize irrigation schemes.
Environmental agenciesThese organizations will benefit from the measuring of carbon emissions in different lands. They can also improve water management and reporting will be more accurate.
Insurance companiesWeather insurances can be improved (e.g. compensation to the effect of local weather circumstances as drought). They will benefit from historic information about yields and yield predictions.
