A universal indicator for close crop monitoring
Spot Image has invested 15 years of R&D effort to develop a unique tool for analysing plant cover.
Our proprietary Overland™ software processes satellites imagery automatically to estimate biophysical parameters characterizing crop status and structure. This upgradable tool can be configured for different sensors, types of vegetation, areas of interest, types of soil and viewing conditions. What makes it unique is the methodology employed to provide parameters that do not depend on local conditions and viewing conditions.
This novel approach allows you to map your crops’ biophysical properties in ways that are:
- measurable in the field
- temporally and spatially comparable
- compatible with agronomic models
PixAgri map products pinpoint temporal and spatial variations in plant cover characteristics between fields or at sub-field level. These maps support diagnosis of crop condition across all fields and tracking of changes throughout the growing campaign.
