2012 Nectar Flow GA003 Athens, Georgia, USA
MODIS Land Cover GA003 Athens, Georgia, USA

At NASA's Honey Bee Net plant/pollinator interaction (necar flows) are used to measure the performance of the environment, instead of the performance of individual hives. Since the 1970's NASA volunteers have been measuring plant/pollinator interaction to help correlate satellite imagery with what is happening on the ground.

The data is carefully checked for accuracy and assigned a quality score. NASA's data from Maryland indicates that the peak nectar flow occurs nearly 4 weeks earlier than in 1970's.
