The major goal of the research is to develop a pipeline to model suitability using UAV and satellite data under current and future climate conditions. We will develop and apply the pipeline for three specialty crops, grapes, strawberries and citrus under current climate and 2021-2040, 2041-2060, 2061-2080, 2081-2100 conditions. In this project, parallel and distributed algorithms will be used to supply coarse, medium and fine-grained analysis to the suitability model.The specific objectives are:1. Estimate current and future agricultural suitability using satellite data.2. Estimate current and future plant-health suitability using UAV data.3. Geospatial data fusion for agricultural suitability.
