What we do

TerrAvion is an image delivery service. Our core service is called OverView, which delivers subscription imagery, overnight, throughout the growing season. The images allow growers to have a real up-to-date picture of all of their fields as well as synthetic maps and analysis.

Our service works by TerrAvion contracting with flight providers, flying small planes, to operate a sensor that TerrAvion designs and integrates. TerrAvion plans and monitors the routes to ensure quality delivery. Our company’s technology is mostly around how to manage and process millions of acres a day, overnight, at a very low cost. We deliver our service first and foremost through our API (application programming interface–an endpoint for computers to talk to each other). Our web and mobile software, as well as partner software, call this API to deliver maps and images to the client.

We view our job as abstracting away all the complexity and delivering maps that are ready to use so that growers can spend more time applying their expertise, more powerfully, and over a larger area.

TerrAvion was founded on three main insights:

Imagery for people

First, imagery is really, really powerful for people doing operations outdoors. It changes the way organizations work, and lets leaders make their teams much more effective.

Collect data

Second, anyone who can make use of imagery is busy enough that they would be a fool to collect their own, especially with drones, which are a pain to operate.

The big picture

Finally, that what makes imagery useful isn’t so much the image itself, but everything that goes around it like price, speed of delivery, frequency of repetition, and who else can see the data.
