Generic & Custom Scouting Maps



If you wish more details, please go to the article Scouting Analytics


1. Scouting Maps - Generic

This analytic allows to generate generic scouting maps such as: RGB, VARI, NDVI, NDRE, MCARI2, CCCI, MSAVI2, CIR and PRI.

 Orthomosaic (RGB sensor) or Reflectance map (multispectral camera) are required for this analytics

Note : For Multispectral camera, the scouting maps are automatically generated during the photogrammetry process


From the survey page, click on “Analytics”, select your category (Field experiment or Production field), then search for “Scouting Maps - Generic” on the left panel, and finally click on “Launch” 


2. Scouting Maps - Custom

This analytic allows to generate custom scouting maps.

Reflectance map are required for this analytic. 

Step 1 : From the survey page, click on “Analytics”, select your category (Field experiment or Production field), then search for “Scouting  map - Custom” on the left panel, and finally click on “Launch”

Step 2 : Select a reflectance map

Step 3 :  Type the formula using band names and operators then enter an output name.

Step 4 : Launch Scouting Maps - Custom 


After completion, you will see the deliverable appearing in the BASE LAYERS / Scouting maps section of the left panel. 

From there you can use features such as Value at Point to read indice value at any position of the map, or use a Point annotation to extract values. The custom map can be exported from the Download section as well.
