Satellite imagery API | Part 5 - How to get your polygon in GeoTIFF format with "data"?
Posted on 20 Feb 2019
This is the fifth article from the series Satellite imagery API. Information about our product, its capabilities and why we recommend you to use it, you can read in the first previous article - Why Satellite imagery API?
Satellite imagery API allows you to get satellite data as a polygon in GeoTIFF format. You can get the image of your polygon for all available products: True color, False color, NDVI and EVI indices (gives you the information about vegetation level on your polygon).
You can get information about polygon creation process from the documentation on our web-site or from the article in our blog.
This option was designed for users who want to work with raw data. This data format provides you with ample opportunities for self-processing of satellite data.
To get GeoTIFF image of your polygon you need to do 2 simple steps:
Step 1. Specify an ID of your polygon, a period of searching and your API key in the request to our system. In the Agro API response, you will obtain the array of JSON structures related to your polygon, sorted by dates range and contained 'data' field with URLs links of products (True & False color, NDVI & EVI indices) which you can receive in GeoTIFF format.
Step 2. Copy the URL obtained in the 'data' block and make an API call. In result, your polygon in the selected product will be downloaded on your computer.
To work with this data format, you can use the following programs: GDAL, QGIS, GRASS GIS, etc.
See examples and parameters description in our documentation.
