The project's 3 pilot sites in French Guiana, Martinique and Guadeloupe have permit to generate map products and geo-indicator derived from satellite data, and to build a Web-based GIS demonstrator to answer the following issue: land clearance monitoring in slash-and-burn farming in French Guiana, soil risk erosion assessment in Martinique and agriculture pressure on protected area evaluation in Guadeloupe.
