What is geospatial data?

Geospatial data is any object or information that has a location on the Earth’s surface. Most data that is related to climate, agriculture, and food security has some element of geospatial information, whether that is information spread across space and time, or at specific locations (points) for a specific window of time.

Leverage Gro's geospatial data to

Monitor crop conditions in real time/near real time

Model yield predictions

See how climate change will affect certain crops in the future

Assess the severity of a flood or drought

Three major features set Gro's geospatial data apart

Earth observation data

Accurate measurements of climate/weather, soil, and vegetation of the Earth’s surface going back **** years

  • XX

  • XX

Fast zonal aggregations

Global spatial coverage allows for fast zonal aggregations

  • A global, up-to-date layer of all cities, districts, provinces, countries, and continents with administrative boundaries

  • Very powerful for searching and defining regional calculations quickly

Multiple variables

Multiple variables and indicators

  • Observed or modeled weather variables including precipitation, temperature, evapotranspiration

  • Also variables like Soil moisture, vegetative health , NDVI Water bodies

Directly in the Gro platform

The Gro platform leverages our geospatial data to enable better and faster decision making. 

For example, Gro’s Climate Risk Navigator for Agriculture (CRN) gives users a detailed look at cultivated agricultural areas, providing information on where specific crops are grown. Users can change crop weights within the application and it allows you to look at climate variables and indices weighted by the land area designated for specific crops.
