OPEN SKIES tells the story of Andrew, a farmer from Allington U.K. who works alongside his family on their arable and dairy farm.
The family has taken advantage of new tools and technology that allow them to easily view satellite data of their land, which has been opened up the European Space Agency. They use the data to strategically apply precision farming tactics to their land.
OPEN SKIES is part of GODAN'S open data web series that meets individuals around the world who are on the front line of how technology and data are reshaping agriculture to combat food insecurity and improve global nutrition. OPEN SKIES is the fifth and final episode of the series.
