Cropix is a platform to introduce innovative map products from satellite data that can be used in geo-information systems (GIS). It specializes in spaceborne radar data (SAR synthetic aperture radar), and uses optical data as reference. Its main objective is cropland, crop growth, crop damage and crop performance.
SAR map products are unique in terms of reliability. While optical data regularly fails due to clouds, radar monitors the growth of cropland. Thanks to high data quality, statistics can be derived to generate more information related to phenology or growth dynamic.
