The Science and Technology team at Geosys has been working on advanced processing techniques for Landsat 8 for several years – giving our customers a distinct advantage over the competition. We don’t wait for the industry … we lead the way.
In 2016, Geosys began offering an enhanced version of Landsat 8 NDVI maps. While the satellite delivers at 30-meter resolution, it is also capturing some data at 15-meter resolution. By understanding the data available on the various bands and running calculations, we can accurately enhance the imagery to deliver the data at 15- meter resolution without any distortions.
This process has been verified and validated by historical imagery captured of the same location on the same day by both Landsat 8 and Sentinel 2 (which operates at 10-meter resolution).
