Making Sense of Remote Sensing

The use of satellite and drone imagery is taking off in a big way, especially in the agricultural sector. In this blog, I attempt to demystify some of the technical (sales) jargon and provide some practical examples that demonstrate the value of remote sensing and other geospatial technologies in agriculture and related industries. 

Our crops are beautiful

I was playing around with some Sentinel-2 images and accidentally created this image (if you are interested in the technical stuff, see "Technical Stuff" below). Essentially, the colors in the image depict temporal variations (phenology) in crop growth throughout the recent winter season (June to November). Isn't it beautiful? This one is definitely going onto my wall... #croptype #mapping #satelliteimage #remotesensing #art Technical Stuff The image was generated by performi

These are the bands that farmers should like

In an earlier article I explained that remote sensing – within the context of earth observations – is the practice of deriving information about the earth’s land and water surfaces from afar. In most cases information is obtained by studying, interpreting and analyzing photographs (images) acquired from an overhead perspective. Typically, fancy cameras (called passive sensors) are mounted on satellites, airplanes or drones to record sunlight (electromagnetic radiation) reflec
