Using post-flight photogrammetry software such as dronedeploy, we are able to deliver state of the art survey mapping data with everything from 3D imagery, contour maps, thermal imagery and site analysis. Whether you have plans to sub-divide a land plot, build your dream home or commercial property, or want to monitor and increase crop yields, we can deliver a professional, cost-effective service for all your aerial mapping requirements.
With a fast and cost effective Drone flight, get quick and accurate crop statuses throughout the growing season to identify potential problems and improve crop management. Analyze multiple crop health indices with Visual NDVI data. With the option of multispectral and thermal imaging, the efficiency of field irrigation can be carefully managed, while also providing improved data on crop yields.
Survey & Mapping FAQ's
Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is a measurement of the amount of live vegetation in an area and is commonly used for agricultural assessment to detect plant stress, ground moisture, irrigation issues, weeds, crop disease and compare vegetation conditions in various areas of a crop. We can reproduce NDVI information using proprietary software and visible light cameras.

This depends very much on the level of detail and type of data required for the operation. Once we have the waypoints and grid flight pattern programmed in the drone control software, we can cover a fairly large field and deliver effective results in a single 20 to 30 min flight.
Ground control points are large marked targets on the ground, spaced strategically throughout the area of interest, referenced to RTK GPS coordinates. The ground control points and their coordinates are then used to help drone mapping software accurately position the map in relation to the real world around it.
