Today, we would like to look in more detail at one of the essential elements of our Agro API, Satellite images API. Satellite images API is the dataset from the Landsat 8 and Sentinel 2 satellites on the basis of which we calculate quantitative indices, such as NDVI, EVI, and others, and from which we also obtain ready-made images of territories in TRUE and False color, NDVI, and EVI.
We provide a historical data as well as satellite images that are as up-to-date as possible (allowing for the data source and cloud cover) for the very nearest time period. These satellite images are available to all account users, including those who are using the free package. For non-paying users, the range for satellite data requests is 6 days. For the paid service, it is one year. Learn more.
Please note that there are limitations on the total area for which data can be requested as well as the number of requests that can be made per minute. However, should you exceed these figures, we will continue to provide you with the data you need so that your work is not affected and your customers do not run and hide!*
All of the details and the full set of the Agro API capabilities can be viewed here.
As always, we would be glad to hear your remarks and suggestions regarding our product!
* At the end of your billing month, we will provide you with a separate bill for any additional area, beyond the tariff limits, for which you requested data.
