To begin viewing field satellite imagery in Cropwise Imagery, navigate to Image Catalog within the left-side menu.
Next, select the image catalog dropdown to view the list of available images. Cropwise Imagery defaults to Sentinel, 10 meter resolution images which are available for selection every 3 to 5 days on average. Each available image will display one of three cloud presence icons:
Sunny: 0-33% cloud presence
Partially cloudy: 33%-66% cloud presence
Cloudy: 66%-100% cloud presence
Highlighting your cursor next to each available image will indicate the % cloud presence. Images can be filtered based on date selection, cloud presence and sources.
Cropwise Imagery defaults to the NDVI (Red) vegetation index and can be changed to the following options depending on current crop growth stage and scenarios:
The legend visible in the lower-right corner is measured from 0 (red) to 1 (green). A vegetation index is used to measure plant health by calculating how much light the plant is absorbing and using for growth. Areas within fields represented from a light green to solid green, index values closer to 1, will indicate a healthy plant biomass.
A plant reflecting more light is a less healthy plant because it is using less light and will be represented with an index value closer to 0. These areas in the field will be typically represented from yellow to red.
The color palette can also be adjusted to other predefined palettes.
