According to the Good Agricultural and Environmental Condition (GAEC), farmers have to plough or plant parallel to contour lines to avoid erosion on slopes more than or equal to a certain percentage defined by the country (e.g. slope of 10 percent). By detecting parcels within this slope range, detecting the slope direction and the ploughing or planting direction, it is possible to determine whether the farmer is compliant.
