There is a rapid emergence of new technologies in unmanned aircraft system (UAS)/drone and their applications for data collection and decision making in agriculture, in governmental organizations, academia, and the private sector. There are common issues and interests among these different user communities. These relate to collecting data for climate resilience, adaptation, and mitigation in agricultural environments, as well as to data stewardship and quailty. This session will bring together representatives from the three sectors to share experiences and potentially foster collaboration.
