Abstract

The environment and agriculture issues are becoming extremely important and are facing many challenges. It is believed that wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), Remote Sensing (RS), and Geographic information Systems (GIS) are three key enabling technologies to address those urgently challenging issues. Although extensive research has been conducted on individual technologies, their seamless integration to solve complex environmental problems has never been done before. This paper provides a provision and design for the multi-disciplinary integrated autonomous monitoring system. The integration will provide a powerful tool for optimal, profitable, and sustainable management of environment and agriculture and thus bring significant scientific and social benefits.
