After adding a field, a satellite map of the field with a biomass layer on it is displayed.
Two types of satellite maps can be selected to view the field. Click on the map layer tile in the lower right corner of the field map and choose between

This high resolution but outdated earth map is useful to identify field boundaries when adding fields to Atfarm. The base map offers the possibility to navigate on fields and get high resolution on field boundaries specially to detect creeks and roads, etc.
These low resolution but up to date satellite images are useful to check the field condition.
The satellite images are taken every 3 - 5 days by Sentinel-2 A and B satellites of the European Space Agency's Copernicus programme.
By browsing the timeline with various satellite images, you can observe the crop development of a field. You can access up to two years of historical field images and biomass maps to track trends.
Clouds can be detected easily through field view images due to Atfarm's cloud detection algorithm. As clouds can interfere with creating variable rate application maps, this feature is providing an option to check unclouded images.
