  • Active internet connection
  • Operation enrolled in satellite imagery

Process - Web

  1. Log in to Granular Insights for Canada at
  2. In the Field List, click on the field that you'd like to view imagery for.
  3. Ensure either the Vegetation Index or True Colour (satellite) map layer is selected for your field (drop-down menu at the top of the screen).
  4. Scroll along the timeline located at the bottom of the screen to view dates that have available satellite imagery.
  5. Use the Jump To drop-down menu Screen_Shot_2019-10-16_at_10.18.45_AM.png to quickly move along the timeline to a specific period of time.
  6. Check the box on the timelineScreen_Shot_2019-10-09_at_11.53.31_AM.png to display cloud-free days only. If you would like to see images captured on cloudy days, uncheck this box.

Process - Mobile
