What is your relationship with agricultural information management standards, tools and services?
I am engaged in various curricular and non-curricular activities in my organization, Hawassa University Wondo Genet College of Forestry and Natural Resources. As I am using earth observation and GIS technological products, I am directly using and producing agricultural information from various sources. For instance, I use satellite images to produce agricultural landuse maps as a means of information and input for agricultural planning and decision making. Herewith, I use different guidelines, agricultural census reports, and other sources of metadata based on the requirement of the users (institutions, researchers, ... etc.) as requested or for personal use. Moreover, geostatistical approaches, database management systems and webGIS are platforms for storage, dissemination, and reporting of the information I produced.
