This EU funded provides real time sensing information for precision agriculture applications such as water stress monitoring, detection of nutrient deficiencies and crop diseases (VIDEO).
In May Dronemapper processed an interesting data set from Easter Island, Chile at 30 cm / px GSD.
Inpho 5.5 includes Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) data processing and LPMaster, a new software product specifically designed for the production of Trimble Harrier aerial LiDAR and imaging data.
Therefore DARPA in invites teams for eight weeks of radical innovation in visual and geospatial data analysis for DARPA’s Innovation House Study.
With the fast technological advances in miniaturized autopilots and digital cameras, lightweight autonomous flying platforms are increasingly used to generate up-to-date and detailed environmental maps and geographical information data.
Unmanned aircraft systems promise to achieve a more significant aspect of commercial presence. Markets at $363.7 million are anticipated to reach $2.8 billion by 2018.
Aerial survey company Bluesky has launched a fast response aerial survey service using state of the art unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or drones.
UAV and Low Altitude Photogrammetry are shown as a set of techniques for collecting and processing images that open new opportunities for users of aerial images providing a faster and more direct acquisition on specific or smaller areas where a traditional aerial survey is not the most appropriate solution.
