Abstract : Agricultural systems are the key to understand land use in relation to sustainability, and thus, in view of the global challenges, there is an urgent need to better characterise these systems at both the regional and global scales. We present recent methodology developments for multiscalar agricultural systems' mapping - from the cropping system to the agricultural land use system - such as multi-sensor data combination, expert knowledge-driven methods and land units stratification.

Mots-clés libres : Remote sensing, Agricultural systems, Land use, Cropping systems
