LandViewer's New Views for Newbies ... Professional Results for Beginners

Earth Observation for beginners is an enhancement to this company's product that enables non-expert users to select a geographic area for analysis, an Earth observation data type, and then apply it for on-the-fly imagery analytics.          

EOS, based in California, launched their cloud based tool LandViewer which enables non-expert users to select a geographic area for analysis, an Earth observation data type, and then apply it for on-the-fly imagery analytics. Since the solution was first launched June 2016, the software developers have added many new features that allow the use of simple and innovative LandViewer instrument in various industries.

LandViewer's technology of processing and data collection offers users the opportunity to collect geospatial images in real-time and generate them even without the involvement of serious professional data processing techniques or specialized software. Just find the location, process the necessary filters and indices, compare, analyze it in the system, and download the image using the browser. The service gives the opportunity to simplify the work and calculate spectral indices for different dates, receive new information from remote sensing data directly in the browser with no need to download huge amounts of data.

It allows partly free access to the huge data archives of Landsat 4, Landsat 5, Landsat 7, Landsat 8 (day and night scenes), Sentinel-2 and MODIS, including coverage of the entire surface of the Earth and daily updates.

LandViewer users can instantly synthesize useful results from a data source to generate, for example, spectral indices, shortwave infrared composites and many others using a wide range of settings selected in just a few clicks.

Some of the improvements include:

  • Working with the Area of Interest has become much more convenient. Previously, when loading your GeoJSON or KML file in LandViewer, only one geometry could be imported from it. Now it is possible to load a lot of polygons, lines or points from external files for easy searching of images.
  • The user can draw his AOI directly in LandViewer, convert AOI to measurements, save it to the lists and download created AOIs to his computer. The turning on the notification function and receiving the email notifications of new images with a preview and characteristics is available for AOI.
  • Now the visible in LandViewer image can be downloaded in any band combination and with any contrast settings as JPEG for using in web and/or print. 
  • There is no need anymore to download the whole image if the user is only interested in a specific part of it. It is possible to check the box next to "Crop by extent", select the required area and click "Download" (payed feature).
