Find Location

To get started with LandViewer, you need to find the Location first. There are several ways to fulfil the task:

  • enter the address in the Search box

  • enter coordinates in the Search box

  • scroll around, find the location on the map and stick it with a pointer

AOI (Area of Interest)

Once the Location is found, LV marks it with polygon by default. You can also specify the area that better fits your interest, using AOI  – an instrument for working with a specific area of image. To set the AOI in LandViewer, select one of the following options:

  • draw the “rectangular AOI”, using the tool-box in the left sidebar

  • draw the “circular AOI”

  • draw the “polygonal AOI”. The polygon tool allows you to add points and outline your AOI as precise as possible

  • upload your KML, GeoJSON, Shp file in LandViewer. Once you click AOI icon, the tabs My AOI (the list of the saved AOI’s) and My Subscriptions (the list of AOI’s you are subscribed for) show up in the menu on the left

  • in the bottom of the main menu click Upload AOI and select the necessary file

  • Once the file is uploaded, add it to the list of AOI’s, clicking Save button below the selected AOI or in the context menu in the bottom centre of the screen

  • download AOI in .geojson/.kml/.shp formats

Customize AOI

Use the Сontext menu to customize your AOI, that is:

  • hide the AOI

  • select the area units: kilometers or miles

  • convert it to measurements to check the Distance and Area of your AOI. Click the icon once again to discard changes

Subscribe to My AOI

My AOI allows you to draw your target area, save it to My AOI list and use it across all the EOS Platform products. To Subscribe to MY AOI and get notifications about the newest satellite images of the saved area:

  • select the AOI; once AOI is set, the list of images from all the satellites available in LandViewer shows up in the right sidebar.

  • hover over the images, one by one, to choose the one that covers your AOI entirely

  • apply the filters and select the Scene that fits your AOI most

  • click the “bell” icon under the list of the images and confirm your subscription

  • check the AOI details and click Subscribe to get email notifications every time new satellite images are added
