Formatted abstract
Consideration of ground cover is an important aspect of land management, particularly in agricultural environments. Land management decisions can be better informed by timely information on ground cover levels. The aim of this work was to establish a process for creating and distributing, to the public, monthly ground cover products within a short period following the end of the month. This paper describes the existing data, algorithms, compute servers, data distribution infrastructure, and goodwill that we re leveraged to achieve this goal. The data are currently used by the DustWatch project for monitoring land susceptibility to wind erosion and we expect there will be other beneficiaries.
