The VanderSat Biomass Proxy is specifically designed for agricultural crops and provides daily images of biomass estimations at high resolution (10 m).
Due to this high spatial and temporal resolution, VanderSat Biomass Proxy opens up the opportunity for continuous monitoring of crop conditions, an option that Earth Observation systems in the optical domain simply cannot provide.
- Operational product is due for delivery in March-April 2021, but only for BASF. One factor is the shapefiles needed to make product.
- Daily data is not near real time as yet
- Biomass proxy is affected by land preparation and vegetation structure; conversion from biomass proxy to absolute biomass still needs to be made.
