Introducing Lens Vegetation Alerts

Using machine learning to help Lens users spot landscape change in near-real-time

Easy access to remote sensing imagery and data makes it efficient to consistently monitor large and remote landscapes. Yet it can still be challenging to quickly understand when and where major changes such as wildfires or unexpected tree clearings occur.

Vegetation Alerts help you stay on top of changes as they happen. This new feature is designed to support Lens users who are remotely monitoring large areas or portfolios of properties.

By applying machine learning to automatically review past and present remotely-sensed vegetation data, this feature highlights areas where a significant decrease in vegetation vigor has occurred compared to the same period in prior years. Vegetation Alerts will then automatically notify Lens users of the location of the change, enabling them to quickly review it.

Check out our quick walkthrough to see it in action:

Vegetation Alerts offers Lens users peace of mind with the knowledge that they can swiftly respond to unexpected events on the landscape.
