*Cloud based imagery services for understanding landscape change to
support opium monitoring in Afghanistan*
Information on illicit poppy cultivation in Afghanistan is of critical
importance to the opium monitoring programme of the United Nations
Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). The pattern of cultivation is
constantly evolving because of environmental pressures, such as water
availability, and social and economic drivers related to counter
narcotics activity. Remote sensing already plays a key role in gathering
information on the area of opium cultivation and its spatial
distribution. The shift to cloud computing opens up exciting
possibilities for extracting new information from the huge amounts of
satellite data from long-term earth observation programmes. You will
test the hypothesis that inter-annual and intra-seasonal changes in
vegetation growth cycles are predictors of poppy cultivation risk. This
will involve using emerging cloud based technologies for processing
image data into accurate and timely information on vegetation dynamics
relating to opium cultivation.
