Monitoring agricultural lands, their use and evolution over time; analysing the growth and sustainability of forests and urban areas to plan their management; or developing policies that lay out the agricultural strategies of whole regions. Land management takes care of multiple facets of our environment and is performed through a miriad of institutions: public administrations, regional and national governments and societal platforms.

Although it is what it is, we all look at the weather from different perspectives. Farmers look with hope at rain predictions and worry about extreme weather events like frosts. Urban planners design cities that are adapted to specific weather conditions, and their decisions have to hold for decades, shaping the day to day of thousands of people. Researchers are more interested in reproducing certain conditions and processes, to understand them better.
