Welcome to VEGA-РRO!
VEGA-РRO - professional information service for monitoring of renewable biological resources based on satellite data analysis.
VEGA-PRO Service is created based on long-term developments of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Space Research Institute - IKI (Department of Satellite Monitoring Technologies) in the field of automated methods and technologies for satellite data collection, processing and dissemination. The VEGA-PRO service was created with support of the Skolkovo Foundation. At present, the VEGA-PRO service development is provided by IKI jointly with the Institute for Space Research of the Earth (IKIZ Ltd.). The VEGA-PRO service is maintained by IKIZ, participating company of Skolkovo space technologies and telecommunications Cluster.
VEGA-PRO is information service for professional operations with in near-real-time updated satellite data archives and other geospatial information to provide solutions for wide range applications focused at assessment and monitoring of renewable biological resources primarily related to agriculture, forestry and forest industry.
VEGA-PRO service is based on updated in near-real-time data on state of vegetation in Russia and neighboring countries acquired by satellite remote sensing instruments. There are daily updated data archives for any area of Northern Eurasia region from the beginning of the twenty-first century to the present.
The service performs automated satellite data processing, which allows carrying out daily information update.
In particular, VEGA-PRO service is facilitated to analyze the vegetation cover state (for example, agricultural crops and forests) using vegetation indices time-series based on its seasonal and multi-annual dynamics for every single point or user-specified polygon. Information can also be integrated at the level of administrative districts for any region of Russia.
Service is aimed primarily at professionals in agriculture and forestry. Its task is to provide assessment of vegetation state at the different objects (agricultural fields, pastures, hay fields, forest stands, etc.) within the area of interest. In this case, the service users can set borders for object of interest and analyze available data. Thus, for example:
- crop insurance experts can determine consequences of various negative factors on insured crops;
- landowners can monitor crops development progress for agricultural management planning;
- foresters can carry out forest resources assessment and forest area changes caused by fires, logging and other disturbances.
Access to the service
The VEGA-Science provides free access to information and data analysis tools to carry out scientific research.
