Irrisat Consortia

Controllo dell'irrigazione basato su immagini satellitari

Irrisat fornisce la stima dei volumi irrigui e le mappe delle aree irrigate per una efficiente gestione del servizio irriguo Consortile. Conforme all’art.3 del D.M. MIPAAF del 31 luglio 2015


Irrisat provides you with estimating irrigated volumes and maps of areas that are actually irrigated for efficient service management, resulting in the following benefits:


  • Identifying Irrigated Areas Without Authorization and Retrieving Their Roles
  • Reducing illicit irrigation (deterrent effect of satellite control)
  • Reducing field controls and in-house inspections
  • Checking the irrigated volumes provided (whether or not there are automatic meters)
  • Validating the operation of the counters
  • Support for the issuance of contributions for real water consumption
  • Complies with Article 3 of the D.M. MIPAAF of 31 July 2015

The irrigation zone mapping system is based on the temporal variability of vegetative vigor. Based on a minimum number of elaborate satellite images, you can locate a classified map of crop growth patterns and verify that the growth curve is linked to the established water supply. By crossing the information layer of the recorded particles and that of the classified map, the areas where there is potential wrongdoing to be verified through direct field interventions are identified.

The estimation of the irrigated volume of crops is quantified on a daily scale using weather variables and parameters characteristic of the crop, such as the Albedo r, the LAI leaf area index (assessed by satellite images). It is the most accepted model on a scientific basis, reported in the F.A.O. notebook. 56 (Allen et al., 1998).

This model is listed as an effective method in the "Methodology of estimating irrigated volumes (withdrawals, uses and refunds)" drawn up by the Permanent Table for quantifying irrigated volumes referred to in Art.3 of the D.M. MIPAAF of 31 July 2015.

Web, tablet e smartphone

By connecting to from your PC, tablet or smartphone, with simple and intuitive steps, you can consult via Web-GIS, updated maps of crop status and irrigated volumes.

Software as Service

The service, based on satellite images, can be implemented in any region of the world and is available from the web. Nothing to install, you just need an internet connection.

A chi è rivolto

Reclamation and irrigation consortiums and water managers can obtain maps of crop irrigation needs, assess their growth, and distinguish irrigated areas from non-irrigated areas.
