Easy to use monitoring and comparisons is at Satamap’s core

A simple blog post today to get back to one of the core use cases for Satamap. One feature that differentiates Satamap from other satellite imagery services is the ‘no boundaries’ approach. You can jump in and use Satamap and our smallest subscription unit is 3 million hectares. If you are monitoring 2000 ha, it’s still excellent value at only $900 + GST a year for one 3 million hectare tile. Plus, you get the added benefit of being able to survey the district condition, compare crops and look at the historic and current biomass performance and variability of that property you are looking at buying or leasing. Lets look at a district perspective example.

Lets consider the region north of Moree, NSW in September. The year 2014 was a relatively tough season with the best performing crops in the east. In contrast 2015 saw a change of seasons which is reflected in the imagery below. The Satamap slider bar allows you to put up any two dates one on top of the other for direct comparison shown in the third screen capture.
