Agricultural Pest Diagnosis Using Imaging Technologies

Friday, January 1, 1999


The Distance Diagnostics through Digital Imaging project enhances the ability of the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service to evaluate and propose solutions for agricultural problems, including plant diseases and pests, through the use of digital imaging and the World Wide Web. Imaging stations consisting of computers, digital cameras, microscopes and image-capture devices have been deployed in 94 county offices and in 3 diagnostic labs. To date, over 1,200 samples consisting of more than 3,600 digital images have been processed. This paper will focus on the outreach educational benefits of this technology to Georgia citizens. Aspects of the project to be covered include a description of the Georgia Extension Service and an overview of the project, initial planning, stories, lessons learned, implications to distance learning, and plans for the future.
