Add a map of winter crops of the season 2016-2017 as of Octover 11, 2016. While winter crops are well mapped over the center of European Russia due to their good state and enough time for emerging and development, sowing campaign in southern regions is still ongoing, affecting the accuracy of current crop map. It will be updated to follow plants development.

This year, is the quietest fire situation over the last 10 years on the territory of Russia. According to VEGA satellite service as of May 23, 2013 in the beginning of the year there were fewer than 4,400 fires that have affected the area covered by forest.Such fires were on about 1.1 million hectares, of which about 470 thousand hectares was covered by forest.Total for all types of lands there were fewer than 14,300 fires (including agricultural burns).In comparison, from 2002 to 2012 from the beginning of the year to May 23, there was an average of about 10,000 forest fires that have been on more than 3.5 million hectares (including more than 1.5 million hectares of forested area).

Welcome to VEGA-Science!

VEGA-Science - satellite service for collective use, oriented on information support of scientific studies on status and dynamics of biosphere and its interaction with other components of geosystem.

Development and support of service VEGA-SCIENCE is provided by the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Space Research Institute - IKI (Department of Satellite Monitoring Technologies).

The service is based on long-term archives of satellite data and information products received on their basis, that characterizing vegetation cover conditions in the Northern Eurasia, including Russia and neighboring countries. There are data in the archives on any area of this territory since the beginning of the twenty-first century.

Service VEGA-SCIENCE, in particular, allows to analyze condition of vegetation cover using the time series of vegetation indices, its seasonal and long-term dynamics for any individual site or polygon specified by the user.

The main requirement for access to VEGA-SCIENCE is the agreement of its potential users on free disclosure of provided to the system information to all users of the service for scientific objectives.To realize applied commercial projects, create specialized monitoring systems of renewable biological resources and environment you can use options of satellite service VEGA-PRO.

VEGA-SCIENCE today is a unique scientific installation (UNU "BS IKI-Monitoring"), which is part of the Center for collective use of scientific equipment (CCU) "IKI-Monitoring"
