Drones can capture multispectral images that can be used to set up fairly sophisticated variable rate prescriptions. But not every drone has to be that complicated, argues Thomas Haun.
“The difference is kind of like going to the doctor and getting an MRI scan, versus just getting the basics like your temperature and heart rate taken.”
Nicholas Pilkington and his colleagues at DroneDeploy found themselves faced with a dilemma. The company builds drone 2-D maps and 3-D models, and it wanted to take what it claims is the world’s largest drone imagery dataset much further.
What are the emerging technologies of today that have the best chances to survive the hype and stick around?
Investment at record in 2015 and could expand this year, according to a USDA report.
PrecisionHawk's DataMapper is a platform that includes a collection of algorithms users can apply to their drone-collected data to answer various questions about their fields. One of the newer algorithms added is a waterpooling algorithm it developed with ADM Crop Risk Services for making more accurate flood damage assessments.
