Entrevista de la revista La Vigne

“Ecoclimasol and the Tomorrow’s viticulture” from the review La Vigne

The Agri Connect’s first version, Connected Agriculture Fair, was held in the city of Montpellier, France, the last November 15 and 16. In this context, and together with 40 other exhibitors, Ecoclimasol launched its collaborative platform ClimaVista Agro dedicated to the optimized management of the agricultural crops.

The fair also allowed Samuel Louvet and Julie Caubel, scientific experts of Ecoclimasol France, to exchange with the review La Vigne to project the future of a high-demand area in connected tools and IOT: viticulture. We leave below the extract from this note.

Agri Connect, Tomorrow’s viticulture

A press note from Michèle Trévoux – Review La Vigne N°292 Dec. 2016 (page 79)

High-tech Montpellier received the Agri Connect’s first version, the Connected Agriculture Fair, the November 15 and 16. Fourteen exhibitors presented their technology services and connected objects (IOT). Here is a panorama of the tomorrow’s viticulture.

Ecoclimasol, a collaborative platform

French-Argentina company created in 2011 in Argentina, Ecoclimasol focused its first developments on services and web platforms for the field crops management. Now, Ecoclimasol have diversified its service offering in France, with a technology project for the viticulture: ClimaVista Wine. It is a web platform that provides access to various services and information: 7-day weather forecasts, geolocation of agricultural parcels, topographic maps with orientation and slope index. Every user uploads its data: parasitic attacks observations and water status of their plots. This information allows Ecoclimasol to enrich its database and improve the forecast models. Soon, the Winegrowers will be able to manage up to 10 hectares of vines, free of charge with ClimaVista Wine. Later, Ecoclimasol wants to develop paid services like 7-day forecasts with vegetative stages of the vine, hydric stress modelling o parasite attacks forecast. These services will be operational during 2017, in Argentina and France.

Indice

Deficit and Excess Index: Assess Droughts and Rainfall excess

Frequency, distribution and intensity of rainfall is crucial for any activity linked to agricultural production. A proper assessment of rains helps producers and insurers to better manage risks associated to them. In order to allow ClimaVista Insurance user to daily estimate situations of rainfall deficit or excess, Ecoclimasol has developed both indices. They are based on satellite estimates of the last 30 days and observed rainfall historical values. These indices enable monitoring the condition of rainfall in the region of interest on a daily basis, unlike other weekly or monthly scale indeces.

ClimaVista Insurance Rainfall Search Engine: We Provide Accurate Information

Ecoclimasol has included data from the new NASA’s satellite system  GPM (Global Precipitation Measurements) in ClimaVista Insurance Rainfall Search Engine 

GPM mission, launched last year by  Jaxa (Japanese Spatial Agency) in cooperation with NASA,  is based on a satellite constellation to accurately measure rainfall and snowfall around the world. The system deals with rainfall estimates from its various satellites holistically. They already proved more successful than their previous TRMM and have much better spatial  (10 kilometers instead of 25 km) and  temporal (thirty minutes instead of 3 hours) resolution.

The GPM system aims to expand knowledge about the Earth’s water cycle through more accurate measurements of meteorological processes associated with rains. These observations allow not only to improve climate models but also improve decision-support system such as ClimaVista Insurance.

Discover the new Interactive interface to View and Georreference Maps

The progressive migration of  ClimaVista Insurance from  Google Maps to a new interface, faster and more dynamic will help you to improve your user experience.

Thanks to this migration you will soon be able to :

  • create interactive layers
  • integrate new functions to the map (e.g., regions search engine)
  • overlap shape files
  • customize map controls
  • and much more…

We are sure you will experience new ways to navigate and interact with the interface.

Ecoclimasol in the Bi-regional Meeting on Climate Services of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation

Ecoclimasol participated at the Environment Seminar: Exchanging Bi-regional Experiences on Climate Services to Identify Joint Activities, organized by the Argentinean-European Union Liaison Office in Science, Technology and Innovation on the occasion of the celebration of his 10th Anniversary. This Liaison Office is part of the National Directorate of International Relations from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation.

The Seminar was held on 9 & 10 march, 2015 at the National Academy of Natural Sciences in Buenos Aires with the presence of Program directors from the European Union (EU) and Latin America as well as scientific leaders with international experience in the field of climate services research and innovation.

Main objectives of the meeting were:

  • To share knowledge on international cooperation opportunities  (Horizon2020, ALCUE NET)
  • To promote consortia building for collaborative projects
  • To identify future strategic research and innovation priorities for UE H2020 Program on climate services

Agricultural Drone, an Ecoclimasol-ENSEA Project

On December 15-17 under the framework of the  PLACIS DAY from ENSEA Paris, Ecoclimasol and ENSEA (National School of Electronics and its Applications)  presented an agricultural drone for improving precision agriculture.  The aim of this project, directed by  Phd Thomas Tang from ENSEA, is to enrich the services provided by  Ecoclimasol in South America to the agricultural sector.

The project started in 2013, and will be completed in 2015. For further information please contact as at : info@ecoclimasol.com.
