Abstract: The area of agricultural fields within the European Union (EU) are checked against claims to ensure that farmers receive the right amount ofsubsidies. This measure, stemming from EU Common Agricultural Policy reform in the early 1990s and aimed at preventing fraudulent use of taxpayers' money, is now supported by GPS, in addition to the long existing use of remote sensing data.
