What is drone mapping?

Our drone mapping service can provide a 3D realistic image of any land parcel and at many various resolution qualities. Perfect for survey work and analysing the topographic flow of properties.

how do we do this

Once we have established the area to be mapped, we then program the drone to take overlapping shots from directly above and covering the entire area.  Sometimes this can be thousands of shots.  This is then uploaded to server side software to stitch and analyse the data.

the results

Final output is available in extremely high resolution and able to be simply laid over Google Earth maps or other GPS based software. A 3D view of the layout is available to view online or as a 3D .obj model for use in 3D animation software.

Images can be output for any angle and elevation to determine best practices for seeding, harvest, irrigation, historical records and any future planning.

3D Structures

You can have 3D models made up of structures for close analysis and comparison over period of time.

High Resolution Mapping

Our drone mapping service provides high resolutions (down to 2cm/pixel) of land/paddocks etc.  These images are automatically overlaid onto the respective Google Earth image of the area.  Images are Georeferenced (ie: they include embedded GPS data) which can then be used for measuring accurate area, distances and uploading to machinery software (eg: spray equipment and determining the most economical spray quantities for the ultimate in cost savings)

Our software was able to determine an accurate measurement of 79.8Ha for this paddock.  Combining an historical yield and  current crop health image  for this paddock enables the farmer to determine the potential income for the year.

Farm - NDVI Mapping

The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is a numerical indicator that uses the visible and near-infrared bands of the electromagnetic spectrum, and is adopted to analyze remote sensing measurements and assess whether the target being observed contains live green vegetation or not.

This overall paddock image shows obvious signs of good and poor respective plant health enabling the farmer to investigate and potentially improve crop yield by altering seeding, irrigation etc.

The elevation overlay for this paddock gives some clues to the crop health.  Blue areas being 'lower' in elevation than 'red' which is higher.  This particular map has an 11 metre difference between highest and lowest points.
