SWIIM team members utilize multiple data sources to process crop-water budget information. This includes climatic (weather) data. We utilize a combination of publically-available data, SWIIM-specific instruments and remote sensed data in a proprietary process to confirm what is happening on our client’s fields.

This includes cross-checking data from publicly-available sources. Above, a SWIIM senior team member site checks a weather station in the South San Joaquin Valley near Bakersfield when data we receive from a secondary source doesn’t quite match up. In this case, we think some debris in a sensor is providing the anomaly. This is part of SWIIM’s daily auditing of data as it is processed on SWIIM’s server network. The data our client’s receive is the most accurate available, in order to balance their crop-water budgets throughout the season.
