Data Science

Congo basin eco-climatological data recovery and valorisation

Project lead. The project develops a multi-faceted database by making the archives of the Institut National pour l’Etude Agronomique du Congo belge digitally accessible.

High Resolution Vegetation Phenology and Productivity

We provide remote sensing validation expertise in support of product development.

Historical Aerial Photography Valorization

We used a combination of historical (1958) aerial photography and contemporary remote sensing data to map long-term changes in the extent and structure of the tropical forest surrounding Yangambi (DR Congo) in the central Congo Basin.

Integrated Carbon Observation System PhenoCam protocol

We detail the protocol for the implementation of cameras on Integrated Carbon Observation System flux towers.

Jungle Rhythms

Project Lead. This project strives to transcribe old observations of tree life cycle events (flowering, leaf shedding, fruit dispersion), in central African Rainforests, which are key to understanding a tree’s functioning.

Jungle Weather

Central African climate data rescue using a computer vision, deep learning and crowd sourcing methods.

Open Source Software development

We provide a range of open source software packages in support of (academic) research.

Picture Based Insurance

We provide protocol development and data processing expertise in support of this IFPRI led project to mitigate basic risk in smallholder farmer insurance.
