Actionable Data for Land & Plant Health
AERIAL LAND & PLANT HEALTH MANAGEMENT
Eyes from above is the powerful tool you need to transform images into an actionable plan. The reward is simple: healthy land, healthy crops and higher yields.
Convert multispectral and RGB images into accurate orthomosics, NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) and more.NDVI is a metric measurement used to reveal the health of vegetation. Reflected intensities of near infrared (MIR) and visible light are calculated to reveal dead, unhealthy, healthy and very healthy plant materials.
This information translates to you in an educated ability to assess if your crop needs more nutrients or water... before it’s too late!
Presence of nutrients
Presence of disease
Presence of weeds
Relative biomass estimates
3D / Volumetric data (piles, patches, holes and hills)
For livestock operations, drones can be used to monitor the location, status and movement of animals over time with more frequency and at a lower cost than other means.
Crop Scouting – replace men with drones
Crop Health Monitoring – biggest ROI, by far
Field Surveying/Scouting (before planting)
Plant Stress Monitoring
Leaf Area Indexing
Strawberry Field Flyover & Assessment
Go Unmanned performs a quick
data collection of a strawberry field.
Go Unmanned quickly demonstrates the monitoring
of farm animals: in this case, a herd of horses.
Traditional land surveying is timely and sometimes even dangerous
With a UAV, you can create an automated flight plan and map roughly 50-80 acres of land in just 20 minutes.
Capture / Create 3D Point Clouds
Calculate Volume of Stockpiles
Identify cut/fill lines
Cut lines (red): Above Surface
Fill lines (green): Below Surface
Generate spacing .25 feet & above
Overlayed site progressions
Pre-construction topography verification
Increase Job Safety
Traditional survey methods involve climbing over large masses and piles to gather data. This method adds the possibility of a person falling or getting seriously injured. Other jobs involve working along busy roads with cars racing by. When you add winter weather and icy conditions into the mix, the likelihood of an injury increases. With a UAV, employees are no longer at risk of falling or getting injured. They can fly out to areas not easily accessible by foot and cover much more ground in a shorter time.
Using conventional surveying practices, 40 acres of land takes about one to two weeks to gather and process data. However with a UAV, it only takes about 15 minutes to cover that amount of land with an additional 2 hours of processing. Autonomous missions are quick to design and easy to deploy. This decreases time spent in the field and increases productivity.
