Remote sensing is a term used to describe the gathering of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object. In precision agriculture, this most often refers to the use of various electromagnetic sensor technologies to detect and measure variation in crops and pastures. Aerial photography, satellite imagery and ground-based optical measurements are all examples of remote sensing.
Detecting variability across your paddocks is a key step in starting to manage your resources and inputs more efficiently. It can be difficult or impossible to see broad-scale variations in crop performance from the ground, but when you see things from above, the bigger picture is often a big surprise.
Using data captured by the world’s highest resolution commercial satellites, Eden PA provides the most detailed satellite analysis and monitoring services available on the market. With ground resolutions as sharp as 31cm per pixel, right through to broad-scale analysis at 30m per pixel, there are options available for all crops and applications – from broadacre crops and pastures through to orchards, vineyards, grounds maintenance and environmental management.
When processing remotely sensed data, such as satellite imagery or aerial photography, a range of spectral index equations can be applied to gain useful information which can’t be seen from the ground or using normal visible-spectrum or RGB imagery.
