Sentera Brings Elevation Maps To The AgVault Platform

New Products To Help Manage Time And Resources For The 2018 Growing Season

Sentera has announced the availability of elevation maps within the Sentera AgVault platform, offering agronomists, crop consultants, and growers additional field insights. The system now delivers elevation variance maps. Topography and elevation data helps ag professionals increase operating efficiencies when building variable rate prescriptions, creating drainage or land-leveling plans, and designing subsurface drainage. Elevation maps are ordered within AgVault with the click of a button and are delivered as both a color-mapped topographic map image and set of industry-standard shapefiles.

"We are excited to offer our users another layer of data that will help drive decision making in 2018," remarked Reid Plumbo, director of product management for Sentera. "Elevation data is important in most agriculture application decisions, and our latest capability will allow users to consider it alongside vegetative health products when making application plans."

Elevation data helps customers leverage resources in important ways. Kris Poulson, vice president of agriculture for Sentera explains, "Consultants and growers can survey a field and Sentera will produce and deliver an elevation model that reflects different elevation points throughout that field. This information helps customers streamline activities such as land leveling, prescription generation, sub-surface tile design, and surface water management, including ditching activities."

Poulson continues, "Maybe most importantly – having elevation data in advance dramatically increases your ability to get the project done right the first time, allowing you to focus on other value-added activities."

Elevation maps based on Sentera imagery are available at superior sampling resolution and grid spacing, and more quickly than maps produced with legacy techniques. The accuracy of the resulting product depends on the equipment and techniques used to collect the imagery, but even the most basic drones can generate useful elevation insights.
