Welcome
CAPIGI is the network for geo-information experts active in agriculture. The Community on Agricultural Policy Implementation and Geo-Information (CAPIGI) brings together governments, industry and research to discuss the impact of geo-information in implementing agricultural policy. CAPIGI presents a state-of-the-art overview on innovations and research in geo- information sciences. These emerging technologies get illustrated with practice experiences in agricultural policy implementation.

See agenda for our upcoming events and join our newsletter and our LinkedIn group ‘CAPIGI’ which both keep you automatically informed on related news and developments within the field.
