Abstract

This newsletter compares a human's physical checkup to a test of an agricultural landscape in West Africa. It describes the importance of fast monitoring technologies and the new opportunities it can provide for smallholders. Upgraded mapping systems could improve the natural regeneration of shrubs and trees by providing helpful landscape information.
