What Formats Can I Get My Data In?

How to use your TerrAvion Data

TerrAvion is committed to versatile and straightforward integration of the imagery data we collect on behalf of our growers and their advisers. We offer data integration in a variety of formats, ranging from visual operation controls to quantitative analytics.

Map Tiles

TerrAvion's web-based Overview application delivers pictures of your fields, also known as Map Tiles. These dynamic map tiles produce images of your field in multiple image types, such as infrared, thermal, NDVI, and direct color. Our imagery is generated as a tile pyramid, which allows TerrAvion to generate custom map resolutions based on the client's access point on multiple devices simultaneously. TerrAvion's API is integrated with Servi-Tech's STEPS-Pro, ProPak Software's Land Magic, and other agronomy softwares; this allows us to transfer our imagery data directly into their system. Our data is dynamic, in that your map viewing software will control the the information of the tiles displayed.

Developers across the world, using various web and mobile applications, can control the band, location, epoch, or time of the displayed tiles, including color tiles.

GeoTIFF

In addition to map tiles, we produce geoTIFF files. geoTIFF is a standard geospatial information data type, which is used by ESRI's ArcGIS, open-source QGIS, or Agleader's SMS, among many others. We produce geoTIFF files in a variety of selections; any pre-processed band can be downloaded from TerrAvion as an 8-bit geoTIFF. For example, if you need a simple variable rate map, you can download just the NDVI geoTIFF, assign a color spectrum to our data, auto-generate a vigor map, and create field zones to apply a customized application rate per area.

API Calls

Agronomy researchers and enterprise applications often find more utility in directly calling our API, including Climate's FieldView. Our API includes unique multi-band geoTIFFs which include channels that are otherwise unavailable, such as fine greens and reds. All channels are co-registered, and are available in full 16-bit detail. Again, this option is designed for researchers and enterprises, and might not be directly suitable in some commercial applications without further engineering. Typically, our API is used for remote sensing analytical products.
