Satamap utilises Landsat 8 imagery from the United States Geological Survey. This imagery undergoes our advanced remote sensing image processing to produce accurate maps, pleasing to the eye.
Our Natural Colour imagery and Satamap Vegetation Index has a spatial resolution of 15m.
All our imagery is stored fully renderred on Australian servers based in Sydney for speed and reliability.
If market research determines then it is intended to have reference crops across the regions. These would be labelled crops on reliable farms with cropping history, soil moisture, crop type and sowing rate, fertiliser and then in crop rainfall and growth stages throughout the season.
In field analytics
We aim to analyse growth patterns and export data.
Higher resolution imagery
The Satamap Vegetation Index has a pixel size which represents an area 30m x 30m on the ground. This is consistent with the pixel size from the Near Infrared (NIR) band captured by Landsat 8 sensor. Moving forward, we will be considering other data sources to improve the available spatial resolution (reduce pixel size).
