What Kind of Images are Included?
We display three types of images. Absolute, Relative, and Raw.
The "Absolute" layer can be used to show how far along a crop is in its growth, to identify the variation of vegetative vigor within a field, and to compare a field’s vegetative growth against other fields on the operation.
The "Relative" layer takes the range of EVI values from the Absolute layer and effectively amplifies the variation across a green to red color scale. This layer is used to identify the variation of vegetative growth within a single field.
The "Raw" layer shows a raw image of the field on the date the image was taken. This layer can be used to identify clouds or shadows of clouds that might be showing up in the EVI layers.
How do I find EVI Satellite Images in the product?
EVI imagery is located in the FBN Maps section of My Operations. You can see satellite maps by using the “map-types” drop-down menu located on the left of the screen, just above the map image and selecting "Satellite".
