Farming and Agriculture

Drone photogrammetry makes it possible to accurately map land and fields from the air. We can then use the collected data to accurately measure Acreage, Elevation, Boundary length, and stockpile volumes. Using multi-spectral imagery we can also process high detail plant health reports. These can be used to identify the conditions and health of crops and soil more accurately.

Drones can also be used to inspect hard to reach farming areas and structures on a farm such as shed roofs and silos. With the use of camera drone technology these areas can be inspected and photographed with high resolution photography and thermal imaging from the air, while the pilot and the client are safely on the ground.

We can also use drones with enhanced zoom capabilities allowing us to see finer detail and conduct more thorough inspections.

With a done survey we can also produce:

  • Detailed high resolution 2D orthomosaic images.
  • Measurements of height length  area and volume.
  • Elevation layers.
  • 3D models (.obj) and point clouds (LAS and .XYZ).
  • Annotated reports on Progress and site issues.
  • Cut and Fill volumes of stockpiles.
  • Distance and Slope measurements.
  • Plant health monitoring reports.

Carrying out aerial surveys with drones and utilising RTK/GPS measurement recording ensure that when processed each successful drone survey can produce results accurate to within 1-3 cm. All our surveys come with an accuracy and processing report for reference.

Farming and Agriculture Services

Drone surveying for farming and agriculture is a fast and effective service. The high quality and accuracy of data captured from drone surveys can greatly enhance and improve many of the following areas:

  • Crop Health monitoring
  • Soil analysis
  • Quantity surveying
  • Property Appraisal
  • Planning Permission Applications
  • Insurance
  • Solar Panel Installation
  • Auctioning
  • Heritage and Conservation
  • Construction

All of our survey missions can be planned out ahead of time with input from the client. Our pilots are trained and IAA accredited and happy to liaise with the client and answer any questions or queries they might have.
