How clouds affect our satellite imagery coverage and availability

How do you deal with clouds in satellite imagery?

We do not show imagery with more than 50% cloud cover. We show an indication of the cloud % for each date that we have imagery for so that you can choose to view the ones with best visibility.

What do the cloud percentages that I see on my imagery mean? 

Cloud levels are calculated based on the amount of a tile that is covered by cloud. Your farm may only be a small portion of one tile or be spread across several. For this reason it is possible that a tile with low cloud cover is cloudy where your farm is or that one with a higher level has no cloud, so it’s worth checking if you’re interested in a particular date.
