Introducing the Sentinel-2 Mosaic Service
How can I get multi-band satellite data for my area of interest? Terramonitor's Sentinel-2 Mosaic Service provides automated satellite image preprocessing and delivery, enabling GIS people to focus on what counts: interpretation and analysis of data. Sentinel-2 Mosaic Service: Algorithm at workThe Pain Space data is complex. Building anything on
Cloud vs. Snow
Clouds are always challenging in remote sensing unless you are especially interested in clouds and want them to appear in your satellite imagery. How about snow? It is also white and in some cases, without further analysis, it might look like a cloud. So how to differentiate snow cover and
Errors related to the automatized satellite-based change detection of boreal forests in Finland
Terramonitor took part in a Finnish government head project related to detecting changes in boreal forests during 2016-2019. Time series change detection.The project was executed by Teknologian tutkimuskeskus VTT Oy, Natural Resources Institute Finland, Finnish Forest Centre, Finnish Environment Institute and Terramonitor. Examples of clear-cut and thinning detection.Some
Finnish Space Data Company Terramonitor Enters Russian Market with LesnoyMonitor
Press Release HELSINKI 15.8.2019 Terramonitor released a service for forest owners in Russia to easily track and report forest loggings with satellite images. Terramonitor, a leader in space data solutions, has today launched a service called LesnoyMonitor (www.lesnoymonitor.ru [http://www.lesnoymonitor.ru/]) for the Russian market.
CollectiveCrunch and Terramonitor Announce Strategic Partnership
HELSINKI, Finland (August 14th, 2019) CollectiveCrunch and Terramonitor are tech startups that utilize satellite data among other things to help gaining new insights for forestry industry as well as GIS professionals. So we’re competing, right? Well, no. Looking under our respective technology hoods we realized that some of what
If algorithms could talk, part 1
Currently thousands of earth observation satellites are sending data to the surface around the clock. My goal is to make the most out of that data. This story is about one of my recent projects. In the following example case, the goal was to produce a cloudless view of a
NDVI(BOA) vs. NDVI(TOA)
The normalized vegetation index (NDVI) is a remote sensing measure that describes the difference between visible and near-infrared reflectance and can be used to estimate the density of green vegetation on land. NDVI is defined by the formula where red and NIR stand for the spectral reflectance measurements acquired in
How to estimate condition of forest roads?
Terramonitor wants to collaborate with different educational institutions like universities. Here is an example about project work completed by students of Aalto University – Kamil Marwat, Marie Schoenmaekers and Juhani Heikkilä. They studied how to estimate condition of forest roads with Sentinel-2 data. Read below about results of the project. Start
