iceye api integration case study

Monitor the Amazon rainforest

ICEYE SAR satellite imagery is ideal for monitoring challenging regions such as the Amazon rainforest. Cloudy conditions are not a limitation, vast areas can be observed in a single image, and, thanks to the large ICEYE fleet, satellite revisit rates are high.

How would you use the ICEYE API platform to implement a rainforest monitoring project? Get practical steps for tasking the ICEYE fleet with the ICEYE Tasking API.


1. Build a flexible repeat-tasking client.

See how our APIs can neatly integrate into your UI with a sample case study.

2. Plan a weekly image tasking strategy.

Choose a weekly image tasking strategy to optimize the area that you can monitor.

3. Prepare for out-of-band image tasking.

Have the option to create imaging tasks that are not a part of your weekly pattern.
