OpTIS: Operational Tillage Information System

Applied GeoSolutions has developed a system for operational mapping of tillage practices and cover crops over wide areas. The system, called the Operational Tillage Information System or OpTIS, produces spatially comprehensive maps of crop residue cover and cover crops annually using information integrated from multiple earth-observing satellites. Accurate, timely, and spatially comprehensive information about the dynamic state of tillage practices and cover crops across large regions is valuable for several purposes.
