GSI handles the input, collation, processing and analysis of data from a number of sources, including satellite images provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA).
Together with input from field-based sensors, drones and digital aerial cameras, environmental data such as weather, as well as remote sensing data from satellites and publicly available, geological and climatic forecast sources we are able to collate a rich and valuable data source.
Coupled with imagery data from as far back as 2001, we offer detailed insights into land use and make highly informed predictions about crop yield values.
Our process makes it possible to compare this year’s growth with the last 20 years to confirm if individual crops meet their yield target. By providing these insights during the growing season, growers are able to make adjustments in farming strategies and practices to influence the final yield.
