Satamap is an app designed to give extremely cost-effective, rapid access to satellite imagery applied uniquely and directly to the agricultural industry.
The product can by summarised into three main points:
The content is satellite imagery which is sourced from the United States Geological Survey (USGS). We grab the data as soon as it is available process it as quick as possible. The ready to view data is then stored in Australian servers. This happens every 16 days and usually takes about 2 days from satellite capture to viewing on Satamap. Currently our archive goes back to winter 2013.
The Satamap process involves taking the raw data, and applying the Satamap Vegetation Index (SVI) and generating a Natural Colour image. The SVI uses red, green and near infra-red bands to highlight variability in vegetation (similar to NDVI). We apply a unique colour ramp that remains consistent throughout time and space irrespective of minimum and maximum biomass levels. This means data from different dates and even in different places can be directly compared*. The Natural Colour image is pan-sharpened to a 15m pixel giving extra clarity.
The app is web based (i.e. runs in a web browser) but designed for tablets such as iPad and regular desktop computers. The primary function of the app is to give the user geographic and temporal freedom, freedom to view anywhere within their 3+ million hectare tile and select any two available dates to do a direct slide over comparison. There is of course a long list of features such as map features (roads, towns, waterways), measuring tool, custom markers, GPS positioning, exporting etc. Satamap is best illustrated by video which is available at satamap.com.au.
* In most situations. Extreme soil colour and atmospheric conditions can reduce SVI accuracy
A tile is representative of 3+ million hectare defined area. Click here to view the tile extents and the archive dates which are all available to a subscriber. You can subscribe to one, three or all 50+ tiles. The choice is yours.
A user is representative of an individual than is allowed to log in on one portable device and one desktop computer. For those wishing to register for more than one user we have multi-user discounts and ability to include several users on the one invoice.
