"Workstation of agronomist" is integrated with service of satellite monitoring of fields

01.06.2018

In KB "Panorama" the "Workstation of agronomist" version 12.6 is developed. In the new version in the "Complex of agronomical tasks" the tools of satellite monitoring of agricultural land contours are implemented. New software tools form a single system for obtaining, storing and analyzing the main types of vegetation indices in the form of quality matrixes and average values over the field contour. Vegetation indices are biomass status indicators during the vegetation period, calculated on the basis of multispectral remote sensing data of the Earth. Monitoring the values of the indices during the season makes it possible to predict yields and on-time to determine fields with low efficiency.

Modes "Obtaining matrixes of vegetation indices" and "Obtaining average NDVI values" provide an interface for interaction with an external Geosys service. These modes allow you to upload matrixes of qualities with values of the indices Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Chlorophyll Vegetation Index (CVI), Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI), Green Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (GNDVI) and the average daily value on the contour of the field over the past 10 years. The downloaded data is stored on the user's computer or in a virtual GIS Server folder and can be integrated into a single database of agro-enterprise the GIS "Panorama AGRO". When creating requests for an external service, the "Sowing date" attribute is used from the "Field passport" dialog and a coordinate description of the field contour.

To work with received matrixes within the scope of a single environment, the mode "View matrixes of vegetation indices" has been adapted. It allows you to view and manage the matrixes of vegetation indices from database the GIS "Panorama AGRO". In the new mode, "Viewing of average NDVI values", an interactive graph of the average daily values of the index for several seasons (crop year) is displayed. Analysis of the graph allows us to assess the dynamics of the development of the field's biomass for different seasons. The presence of "failures" or "peaks" may reflect the effectiveness of ongoing agrotechnical activities.The satellite monitoring data loaded into the "Panorama AGRO" database is available for analysis in GIS WebServer AGRO.

A new version of the program is available on the site in the Download section.
