Rationale of useThis tool offers daily monitoring of fields using satellite images and geotagged photos. It compares this data with expected norms and uses a simple traffic light system to categorise results.
FunctioningThis tool gathers daily satellite images for crops and turns the data into graphics. These graphics are compared to what's typically expected for a given crop. The traffic light system shows if the data matches, is uncertain, or doesn't match the expectations. The tool also uses real photos from farmers to check the satellite data.
Types of outputsThe tool provides graphical data, a traffic light system for quick checks, geotagged photos for reference, official verification reports, and field maintenance checks.
