From the Corn Belt to Canada, RapidEye Completes Its North American Agricultural Imaging Campaign

Major Agricultural Areas Imaged Four Times Over Four Months

Berlin, Germany, September 30, 2013 -- RapidEye announced today that its North American agricultural imaging campaign has been completed successfully. The campaign, which ran monthly from May 15, 2013 through September 14, 2013, generated more than 16 million km² of cloud-free imagery over 3 million km² spanning twenty-eight US states and three Canadian provinces.

Program subscribers had access to new imagery as it was collected, including more than 30,000 Level 3A ortho products at the end of the collection windows. The products have an average cloud cover of 5%. The bulk of this imagery (72%) was acquired with low viewing angles of +/- 10°.

AGRI IMAGIS Technologies’ President, Lanny Faleide, boasts, “RapidEye's imaging capabilities have greatly expanded the use of Satshot's agricultural imagery analysis system this past season. In 2013, RapidEye has provided Satshot immediate access to products, many times within twenty-four hours of image capture. Their quality and delivery system is second-to-none in the industry.”

RapidEye’s program had great success in Canada due to its high collection capabilities. According to Wade Barnes, CEO of FarmersEdge, “The agricultural monitoring program from RapidEye has allowed us to provide real-time farm management tools to all our global clients. The information is providing the agriculture community a tool to unlock the potential of their farmland.”

Added benefits of the campaign are the utilization of RapidEye’s high-performance cloud infrastructure and high-bandwidth networking that consistently ensure high levels of service and availability. RapidEye’s Product Manager, Karsten Frotscher, recommends, “Potential clients contact RapidEye for a personal demonstration of what the Agricultural Monitoring Program offers. The Agricultural Monitoring Program will go beyond the US and Canada in 2014 so that global agricultural markets can benefit from RapidEye’s expertise and proven success in this area.” For more information on how RapidEye is innovating the agricultural industry, you can contact RapidEye at  Email Contact.
