Satellites for Agriculture: Application of AI for Satellite Imagery in Farming

satellites for agriculture

Improvement and availability of satellite imagery in recent years (better spatial, temporal and spectral resolutions) took applicability of remote sensing in precision farming to a whole new level. Satellites are observing earth 24/7, and historical imageries of the farm are available from multiple satellite sources. These new layers of data require further digestions and analysis in order to provide actionable intelligence for farmers. Historical data could give farmers some specific insights about what happened, and how it happened in the farm. Historical data could also be fed to artificial intelligence models to predict what will happen.
