CITRII – Burgersford Citrus Orchards

This video is a flyover showing the results of a satellite image (WorldView-2 dated 15 March 2020) analysis of a citrus orchard draped over the Digital Elevation Model of South Africa at 2m resolution (DEMSA2). The analysis was carried out for agricultural research and innovation business CITRII. The automated analysis developed by the Centre for Geographical Analysis (CGA) maps and locates individual trees within an orchard and extracts vegetation vigour (NDVI) values for each tree. Trees (circles) are symbolized with green, yellow and red representing high, medium and low vigour respectively. These results are part of the CGA’s ongoing research on the use of satellite imagery to inform field-level agricultural decision making.
