Environmental Conditions

Lighting
Imagery should be captured between the time of 2 hours after sunrise and 2 hours before sunset. Consistent lighting conditions required for best results, including avoidance of hard shadows cast over the field which cause bright spots and dark spots in the dataset.
Wind
Wind conditions should be within the specified limits of the aircraft or system being used to carry the imaging sensor.
Precipitation
There should be no active precipitation during imagery capture.

Field Crop Area (84006-00)

Description

Crop area delineation and measurement as a digital map layer. Areas within the field measurement typically include: all planted crop regions within the field, in-field alleys or tracks, and areas of poor emergence or lost crop. Areas within the field that are typically excluded from the crop area measurement may include water ways, established field roads, non-movable field equipment areas, and other obvious exclusion zones.
