How can I view cloudy satellite images of a field?

Cloudy satellite imagery is hidden by default in the timeline because the biomass layers can't be applied to them, and therefore Variable N-Rate Application (VRA) Maps can't be created with such imagery.


However, you can still view cloudy satellite images and check whether they're actually cloudy or not as follows:


  1. Click Show cloudy days in the timeline below the map on the field page (mobile: click on the cloud icon below the map) to display all satellite images regardless of cloud cover.BM-showclous1.png
  2. All satellite images will be displayed in the timeline regardless of cloud cover, indicating cloudy images with a cloud symbol.
    • Click Hide cloudy days (mobile: click on the cloud icon) to hide the cloudy images again.BM-showclouds2.png
  3. Select a satellite image with the desired date to view it. A biomass map generated from a cloudy satellite image will look like the image below.
  4. Click on the map layer tile in the bottom right corner of the map (mobile: click on the map layer dropdown below the map) and select Field view to view the satellite image taken on the selected date. BM-showclouds3.png
  5. Check if the image is indeed cloudy or if it's actually cloud-free. The image must be clear of cloud cover and look similar to the image below. Such images can now be used to create Variable N-Rate Application (VRA) Maps, even though they've been marked as cloudy.BM-showclouds4.png
