Drone & Satellite Imagery

The Agricane team uses aerial and satellite images to provide common backgrounds for analysis and development work. We use Landsat, ASTER, SPOT, Digital-Globe, DEM and climate images and surfaces with design software to develop the maps and survey information needed by our teams. Over a project cycle, image backgrounds progress from general (see (1)) to specific ((2) & (3)).
