How can I view cloudy satellite images of a field?

Cloudy satellite images are hidden by default in the timeline as the biomass layers cannot be applied to them and therefore Variable N-Rate Application (VRA) Maps cannot be created with such images.

 

But you can still view cloudy satellite images and check whether they are actually cloud-free by proceeding as follows:

 

  1. Click on SHOW CLOUDY DAYS in the timeline below the field map.BM-showclous1.png
  2. Now each satellite image regardless of cloud cover is shown in the timeline. Cloudy images are marked with a cloud icon. Click on HIDE CLOUDY DAYS to hide cloudy images again.BM-showclouds2.png
  3. A biomass map generated from a cloudy satellite image will look like in the below picture. Click on the map layer tile in the lower right corner of the map and select FIELD VIEW.BM-showclouds3.png
  4. You will see a recent satellite image at low resolution of the field. With this view you can check whether the image is really cloudy or cloud-free. The satellite image should no longer have cloud cover and look similar to this image. Such image can now be used for creating Variable N-Rate Application (VRA) Maps.BM-showclouds4.png
