German and Uzbek researchers collect land use data in Fergana Valley

Scientists from the University of Wuerzburg, SIC ICWC and ZEU had an expedition to Fergana Valley in June 2011. They collected reference data on agricultural fields needed for the evaluation of land use classifications derived from remote sensing data. Besides, measurements of the biophysical parameter Leaf Area Index (LAI) were carried out. The expedition was supported by the German fiat panis foundation.
