Floating Weed Manager is a surveillance and monitoring service of invasive species of aquatic floating-leaved plants (“Floating Weeds”) which can cause social and economic disruption to communities living and working around impacted lakes and reservoirs. It combines radar and optical satellite EO data to provide weekly data and maps of weed coverage to support surveillance and monitoring of the distribution and magnitude of weed populations and consequently supports more effective targeting of weed control programmes. This report summarises the technical feasibility, business viability and proof of concept of the service.
