  • Water quality assessment
  • Vegetation index calculation
  • Plant counting


Used widely in:

  • Plant height measurement
  • Water quality assessment
  • Vegetation index calculation
  • Full spectral imaging
  • Spectral index research and development
  • Mineral and surface composition surveys

Mapping and Analysis Software:

DataMapper (Data management and analysis platform):

  • Accurate 2D and 3D maps of the flight location
  • Places individual pictures together to create geo-referenced mosaics
  • Search survey data with filters, visualize, edit and share data with clients or colleagues
  • Cloud based and desktop subscriptions available

Flight Planning Software:

Import areas of interest you've already defined in shape files to create new flight plans. Flight Planner will generate a new flight plan for each shape it finds in your shape file. Simply set the resolution at which you'd like to capture imagery and you're ready to fly.

UAV Tracking & Monitoring Software:

InFlight enables you to have real time information about your drones location, flight path, altitude and battery health to ensure a safe flight every time.
