When does the data get into SWAN?

When does the data get into SWAN?

Data is collected from a range of sources and uploaded into SWAN on a regular basis. The frequency depends on the type of data, and how often SWAN has been asked to collect the data. Forecast weather data is collected twice a day, once early in the morning, and again later in the afternoon. Other data, such as NDVI data, is collected on a daily basis. Data from soil moisture probes are usually collected every 4 or 6 hours. For advice on the frequency that applies to your situation, please get in touch with us, or your local SWAN Systems dealer.
