Did you know that drone technology is a perfect solution for collecting and measuring spatial data for forestry, environmental sector, land use planning and agriculture?
Drone technology is fitting perfectly between large-area satellite imagery and smaller coverage terrestrial approaches. It is fast, highly accurate and effortless method for collecting data. Drone will get a much closer view of the target than the other methods enabling next-generation analysis.
Drones provide real benefits and accurate data quickly and cost-effectively for countless purposes. Here are few examples:
High-resolution Aerial Images
With drone you can capture accurate aerial imagery and the images can be transformed into 2D orthomosaics (maps)…
… and 3D digital surface models based on UAV 3D-point cloud.
Time Series and Change Detection
Choose how often you would want to map your area: daily, weekly, monthly. See the change with the help of our analyses.
Vegetation analysis, canopy height model, automatic tree detection, species classification, volume measurements and much more can be explored based on data from drone-mapping. We can use multispectral cameras, if you want to analyse plants’ vitality and health based on e.g. NDVI and NDNI maps.
Discover the unbeatable benefits of drones
Less delays due to weather because cloud cover is not the issue. Using an aerial approach overcomes hardly accessible and hazardous terrains such as impenetrable vegetation, boulders, crevasses etc.
Collect data without interrupting work process. Only one person is needed to operate the drone making the use very cost effective. And with our analyses, you will save hundreds of working hours.
A drone can be launched on demand without need to source and book manned aircraft services or wait for satellite imagery. This is extremely useful if you need information fast.
Surveying projects that once took days or weeks are now possible in just a few hours requiring minimal staff. Covering up to hundreds of hectares in a single flight.
At a far greater resolution (even 1,5 cm per pixel) than satellite imagery provides.
Drone make only little noise so animals and people on the ground are rarely disturbed. Field mapping is safer because traffic or difficult terrain does not endanger worker.
