According to Eynullayev, without taking into account the mined areas of the territories [detected in the above districts after their liberation from Armenian occupation in the 2020 second Karabakh war], the land quality in these districts has already been determined.

Within the state program on development of remote Earth observation services, work was carried out to identify favorable areas for building agro parks by using satellite imagery of Azerbaijan’s Azercosmos in the liberated territories.
According to the results of the state program covering 2019-2022, more than 400 projects were implemented using the satellite imagery, together with local government agencies and educational institutions.
