To convince new users of the advantages of the Sentinel_2 sensor, a simplification of classic remote sensing tools allows
to create a platform of communication among domain specialists of agricultural analysis, visual image interpreters and
remote sensing programmers.
An index value, known in the remote sensing user domain as “Zabud” was selected to represent, in color, the essentials
of a time series analysis. The color index used in a color atlas offers a working platform for an agricultural field control.
This creates a database of test and training areas that enables rapid anomaly detection in the agricultural domain. The use
cases and simplifications now function as an introduction to Sentinel_2 based remote sensing, in an area that before
relies on VHR imagery and aerial data, to serve mainly the visual interpretation. The database extension with detected
anomalies allows developers of open source software to design solutions for further agricultural control with remote

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
