DRONE SERVICES FOR AGRICULTURAL MAPPING
Drones have proven to be highly effective for conducting efficient agricultural operations such as crop mapping, soil and irrigation analysis, and spraying. Our drone solutions can help you map large crop areas, identify problems, maximise production, and estimate returns.
Drones are well equipped to survey large pieces of land including protected areas, agricultural sectors, development sites, and sites of scientific interest.
This process involves the use of both visible and near-infrared bands of the electromagnetic spectrum to collect and analyse data, assessing whether the target area contains healthy vegetation.
Crop analysis, chlorophyll level determination, plant health and stress level determination, optimal fertilizer use, nitrogen management, insect and pest in crop identification, plant disease analysis, plant or weed identification.
The low-flying capabilities of drones ensure the capture of precise and detailed data, thereby providing up-to-date and accurate information to support business endeavours such as site development and building refurbishment.
Aerial data for infrastructure assessments, aerial data for GIS applications, infrastructure assessments for insurance claims, geo-referenced high-resolution ortho-rectified imagery up to 1 cm GSD, high-resolution Google Earth overlays.
The accurate and efficient data capture capabilities of drones provide the latest and accurate information required to support environmental impact assessments.
Aerial data for environmental assessments, data for erosion and scour investigations, aerial data for GIS applications, geo-referenced high-resolution ortho-rectified imagery up to 1 cm GSD, high-resolution Google Earth overlays.
Using photogrammetry (a surveying and mapping technique), drones provide quick deployment and turn-around times with accurate reporting from point cloud datasets. Survey ground control, processing, and reporting tasks are carried out by our experienced and registered surveyors.
Uneven terrain can cause difficult and hazard working conditions for surveyors travelling over land on foot. Drones are able to quickly and precisely retrieve topographical maps of large areas with minimal wear and tear on equipment and low risk.
Predesign surveys for site planning, detailed surveys of existing infrastructure and topography, Digital Surface Models (DSM) and Digital Terrain Models (DTM), contour maps, accurate geo-referenced ortho-rectified imagery and maps, geo-referenced high-resolution orthophotos up to 1cm GSD.
Drone data can be used for drainage design plans for development sites. Data can also be used determine the best route for water to flow across a selected area.
High-density point cloud data for analysing terrain and flow patterns.
LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges to objects. These light pulses - combined with other data – can be used to generate precise, three-dimensional information.
Airborne LiDAR survey involves the use of a LIDAR sensor to rapidly scan the environment using Laser and GPS technology, saving on time and costs.
Topographic surveys, accurate Digital Terrain Models (DTM) and Digital Surface Models (DSM) in areas with vegetation, engineering design surveys, corridor / strip surveys, slope monitoring, as-built surveys of existing infrastructure and architecture, accurate ortho-rectified imagery.
Terrestrial LiDAR (3D laser scanning) technologies provide 3D survey data that are accurate, dense and more economically produced than data from surveys using traditional techniques. This can be extremely useful in the documentation of structures such as oil and chemical refineries, highways, bridges and other complex structures, producing accurate ‘as-built’ drawings in very little time and with very little expense compared to traditional methods.
Topographical surveys, as-built surveys, engineering design and architecture surveys, monitoring.
