Surety® and Surety® Pro provide the Sentinel NDVI data at no additional cost and offers valuable reports utilizing this Vegetation Density data.

  • NDVI stands for "Normalized Difference Vegetative Index" and is an indices of relative plant biomass.
  • Max NDVI refers to maximum NDVI value for each 10x10 square meter area for the growing season.
  • Within an area(field) each 10x10 max NDVI square could have occurred on different dates.
  • Sentinel Satellites will/have taken readings at least every 5 days starting in 2018 and 10 days in 2017.

Visit our NDVI FAQ page to learn more about the NDVI.

The NDVI reports are found within the Map/Form list. After you click on NDVI a sub-menu will appear providing the reports that contain NDVI data.

Image

There is also a Maximum NDVI data layer available in the Layers panel.

The NDVI reports include:(click to jump to more details)

- NDVI Max by Year - Maximum NDVI Map and values for an entire year.
- NDVI Multi-year - Display NDVI Map for multiple years.
- NDVI Single Date - Displays NDVI Map and a color legend for a specific date.
- NDVI Soil Map - Display NDVI values per each soil type


Also available is the Maximum NDVI Layer within the Layers panel.



NDVI Max by Year

The NDVI Max Year report shows the maximum NDVI values that were captured within a selected year for a designated boundary.

Image

Features:

Relative Biomass Legend - This grid calculates the number of acres within each value range of Maximum Relative Biomass for the selected year. The grid then shows the percentage of the field that falls in that range and and the soil Productivity Index of those areas.

There is also a breakdown of the Standard Deviation, Mean, Min/Max values as well as the Date range these values occurred in.

Image

Lists crop percentages of the selected area based on USDA CropScape data.

Image

The Soils Weighted Avg shown is based on location.
ND, SD, MN = Crop Productivity Index
IL = Bulletin 811
IA = CSR2
Other States = NCCPI

Image

Add Elevation Contours to the Map simply by typing a desired interval in feet into the Contour Interval textbox and click Update Interval. The map will update with contour information.

Contours can greatly assist in determining why areas of the field may have lower NDVI values. Displaying them will show hills and depressions within the field that can be the cause of reduced growth.

Image

There are also elevation details listed on the bottom of the form.

Image



NDVI Multi-year

The NDVI Multi-Year Report will show four separate images of a four year range of Max NDVI values.

Image

Features:

A map for each year in the 4 year span. The final(top) year image can be set using the Select Year drop down. Please Note: As of this writing, the Sentinel NDVI data only dates back to 2017

Image

Each Year shows the Standard Deviation, Mean, Min, and Max NDVI values. The crop cover is pulled from the Cropscape data layer when available.

Image

Soils Weighted Average and Elevation are given for reference.

Image



NDVI Single Date

The NDVI Single Date report focuses on seeing a NDVI profile for any specific available date.

Image

Features:

Change the Date - % of Max NDVI to see a different day's data. The higher the percentage, the higher the amount of pixels containing the Maximum NDVI for that year were present on this date.

Image

Crop percentages of the selected area are based on USDA CropScape data. This data is related on the Year within the Date selection.

Image

Soils Weighted Avg based on location.

Image

Add Elevation Contours to the Map simply by typing a desired interval in feet into the Contour Interval textbox and click Update Interval. The map will update with contour information. Setting it to 0 will remove all contours.

Image

Relative Biomass Legend - This grid calculates the number of acres within each value range of Maximum Relative Biomass for the selected date. The grid then shows the percentage of the field that falls in that range and displays the soil Productivity Index of each of those areas.

There is also a breakdown of the NDVI value's Standard Deviation, Mean, Min/Max calculations as well as the Percentage(%) of Max NDVI.

Image

There is also Elevation details listed on the bottom of the form.

Image

Finally the secondary map is an image taken on that exact selected date. If cloud cover existed during the date the image was taken, it would appear on this image.

Image



NDVI Soil Map

The NDVI Soil Map integrates the NDVI values into the Soil data grid to show the Max NDVI for the selected year within each soil type.

Image

Use the Soils Options button to adjust the columns shown within the soil grid.
Note: Changing these options will ONLY affect the NDVI Soil Map and not the standard Soil Map.
