Use Geospatial Technology to Maximize Farming Outputs

Geospatial technology is changing the agricultural landscape. Modern agricultural techniques combine highly accurate geospatial information with global positioning systems (GPS) to enable farmers to work smarter. These advanced technologies mean farmers can target specific areas of crops that need attention to significantly enhance their overall yield.

Watch this recorded webinar to see how imagery from Airbus Defense and Space combined with the ENVI Toolkit for Precision Ag from Harris can deliver accurate information including:

  • Hot spot detection using vegetation indices (e.g. MSAVI) to drive prescriptive fertilizer and nutrient applications.
  • Plant and tree counting tools for crop inventory and improved yield forecast reporting.
  • Data preprocessing such as atmospheric correction and georegistration to existing GIS data.
  • Deploying these steps and tools to the cloud in a batch utility to analyze and generate reports for large volumes of imagery.
