TerrAvion CEO Robert Morris sent customers an email saying the company was closed effective September 4, 2020.
“If you are a client, I strongly recommend downloading a copy of any data you have licensed and wish to retain immediately, as we do not know how long our infrastructure will remain active,” he said in the announcement. “I wish we could have given everyone more of a heads up, but we were working and hoping to avoid this until just hours ago.”
The company started its journey in 2013. Its subscription-based imagery delivery services included color, NDVI and thermal.
Per the company website it had collected imagery on more than 24,424,854,474 acres and delivered more than 5 million maps. It prided itself on overnight delivery, cloud-free imagery and being the lowest cost provider for a high-resolution product. The main product was called OverView, which supplied images of crop through the entire growing season.
TerrAvion was solely focused on serving the agriculture industry.
The company partnered with and integrated software with industry leaders including: Climate FieldView, FieldX, John Deere Operations Center, Agrian, EFC FieldAyltics, SST Software/Proagrica, Farm Works, AgJunction, ESRI, FluroSense, Skymatcis, FarmLogs, Semios, Farm Dog, SMS, Pollen Systems Corporation, Ninja Ag, Agremo,
Morris concluded his bankruptcy announcement with, “TerrAvion blazed a path that others can and will follow. We hope that the industry will invest more decisively in whoever comes next, as someone surely will.”
