Remote Sensing and Agriculture have been intertwined for
many years already. Many of the current applications for image interpretation as evaporation indices, crop condition (NDVI), fertilizer maps, etcare being applied in the agricultural sector.
Advanced satellites like LandSat 8 offer a myriad of information, out of which ERDAS IMAGINE can extract information that can be applied directly.
Extracting the right information from raw imagery requires a lot of knowledge on the processes. Fortunately IMAGINE offers a large quantity of predefined analyses, and thanks to the revamped Spatial Modeler one can turn expert knowledge into easy-to-use spatial models for easy access. This allows you to offer your expert knowledge to other desktop users, or via ERDAS APOLLO even to web users.
Photogrammetry is also used a lot in the agricultural sector, for instance when accurately defining parcel borders, capturing driving routes throughout the fields, but also when accurately mapping terrain features and vegetation, etc. GIS Generic geographic information is also for the Agricultural world of paramount importance. It also helps a lot at calculating scenarios in area development, or defining the optimal seeding pattern in a field.
For the ministry of Agriculture, it is very important to manage and disseminate the very often huge imagery files coming from aerial photography and satellite imagery. ERDAS APOLLO has been especially designed for this process. Thanks to powerful compression protocols like ECW and the automatic crawling and harvesting of raster, vector, pointcloud and non-spatial data sources, APOLLO is the preferred tool for organisations managing large areas of land.
