Dashboard for Agricultural Monitoring

Dashboard for Agricultural Monitoring


Dashboard for Agricultural Monitoring is a service created for visual demonstration of a satellite data (NDVI) and weather data (forecast, historical & accumulated parameters), which you can get for the area of your interest (for your polygons).

When you work with single-channel images, you need to focus in depth on a narrow range of values and clearly evaluate researched data.

How to get free satellite imagery from Sentinel-2

How to get free satellite imagery from Sentinel-2

If you want to download Sentinel-2 satellite data, then you’ve come to the right place! Our Satellite Images API was created exactly for this purpose.

How do we process satellite imagery so that customer can operate with Ready-to-use Data

How do we process satellite imagery so that customer can operate with Ready-to-use Data

1) Satellite data search.
1.1. Selection of suppliers or distributors of satellite data.
1.2. Data search in archives. Search is based on the following criteria: - date of satellite imagery, percent of cloud coverage, type of satellite imagery system, level of data preprocessing, geographical area of interest (AOI).

VANE Platform - The Polygon tool

VANE Platform - The Polygon tool

An example of one of the services for agricultural applications offered by VANE has now been added to the Query Builder interface.

The Polygon tool allows you to isolate any outline you want in the photograph, process the satellite images in RGB and EVI, and arrange any color palette with any scale for a specific area.
It is possible to edit it, obtain data on the depicted polygon and download it from the geojson file.

 Then you can get the URL with the assembled polygon and copy it to your site

- the filter algorithm for selecting BEST coverage tiles has changed.
BEST - is the method for overlaying images (parameter value order), and is the best way possible, depending on the parameters selected: date range, satellite, percentage of cloud cover.
Changes to the algorithm have enabled the quality of coverage to be significantly enhanced:

Sentinel-2 - before

Sentinel-2 - after

Cloudless: global cloudless composite coverage based on the VANE Platform

Cloudless: global cloudless composite coverage based on the VANE Platform

In the drawing is global coverage obtained between 06.01.2017 and 09.01.2017 using data from the MODIS spectroradiometer aboard KA Terra and Aqua.

The current cloudless coverage of the Earth by medium and low-resolution satellite images are an important element in the regional and global systems that monitor the territorial changes caused by natural and man-made factors. For example, assessing the damage inflicted by forest fires caused by deforestation, volcanic eruptions, flooding,etc. Also, such types of coverage are popular as the base layer for cartographic web services.

The main stages of creating such coverage are: the selection of images, expert as a rule, the masking of clouded areas, tonal adjustment of images taken at different times of the year, and pasting them into single coverage using so-called “cutlines” which enable, to a certain extent, the joins between the pasted images to be hidden. Such operations, as a rule, are carried out in semi-automatic mode and require specialized software and highly qualified experts, which substantially increases both the time taken to create such a product and its cost.
