Data and Tools

Interface

This tool was developed to facilitate the GEOGLAM crop assessments by providing an interactive interface to compare time series products and allow annotation of data sets provided by the Crop Monitor Group.

There are two different mapping views, a single view and a swipe view. The Crop Assessment Tool also provides registered partners two methods for commenting on crop conditions at the administrative boundary unit level: a map-based view and a table-based view. Comments made using either feature are depicted on the map immediately, according to the overall condition of the crop as defined by the user input.

Earth Observation

The tool is intended for both visualizing the relevant crop condition data and also for facilitating the development of the GEOGLAM crop condition maps. For more information on how to register for the map please contact us. Anonymous users will only be able to view the dataset.

Ultimately this tool allows identification of anomalies and comparison between years, a standard practice for those using earth observation data for crop monitoring.
