Paper Abstract

The utility of commercial satellite multispectral imagery for agricultural applications has traditionally been compromised by inadequate revisit times, time delays between image collection and delivery, and the imagery's spatial resolution. With the launch, in December 1997, of Space Imaging's remote sensing satellite, four-band multispectral imagery with resolutions as high as 4 meters, revisit times as frequent as once per day, and routine delivery times of as little as 48 hours will be commercially available. This new imagery, with it improved timeliness of information to the grower, promises to provide a valuable new information source for crop monitoring and distribution mapping.
