GEOMAP uses radar and optical satellite data to accurately quantify crop information to deliver meaningful information products to industry and government customers in the region. Crop information, including crop type, acreage, health, and yield, is required by many end-users ranging from individual farmers, to multinational agrifood companies, and government agencies. Individual farmers require information at a local level, while agrifood companies and governments need information at regional, national and international levels. Not only are the crop information needs distributed spatially, crop information is temporal-dependent, and usually requires numerous images that span the cropping cycle. The spatial and temporal information needs for crop monitoring lend themselves to the use of satellite imagery, specifically the imagery from radar and optical satellites.
GEOMAP has developed algorithms and procedures that integrate data from a variety of reliable accurate sources that include radar and optical satellites, to produce scalable agriculture information products. These products are designed for interpretation within the agriculture sector, interoperable across many software visualization and analysis platforms, and delivered in a timely manner. GeoMAP’s engineers, scientists, and domain experts deliver common crop information products, and are available to work with customers on the development of custom products required for specific requirements.
Agriculture is from the most ancient ages at the heart of humanity… but it has become today an economically, socially and environmentally sensitive sector. Intensity between food, fuel, feed, steadily rising demand fundamentals, food prices volatility, food security and accessibility issues, increasing food production and productivity without damaging biodiversity, the rising of large agro-holding and agricultural land chasing (farm real estate investment), climate change and water scarcity are a few of the many components of the changing faces of Agriculture.
A new era for agriculture calls for an increasing role of technology and new techniques such as geospatial-driven information to help husbanding and producing crops in an effective and sustainable way.
This is true for the major agricultural basins of the world but also for the new and rapidly developing agricultural lands in the middle east.
GEOMAP’s critical agricultural information and industry insights at the field level or at the scale of an agricultural basin are serving the whole value chain from producers to food processing companies, from agricultural commodities finance and investment operators to reinsurance companies including institutional agencies, multilateral banks and NGOs.
Our 25-year agronomic and geospatial expertise, knowledge of the agricultural environment and wide range of agricultural services and solutions will give you a sharp edge for your business.
