    It’s a fast and simple way to work with satellite imagery. You can call API from your agricultural application and get Satellite images archive for your polygons. You can use them for your machine learning algorithms. We process data on-the-fly and return images as TRUE color and FALSE color channels and also in the form of NDVI and EVI indices in different formats.
    Historical NDVI by polygon
