UAV Applications

Some of the advantages and capabilities of using UAV’s include:

  • Capture timely and detailed aerial images across any size project site
  • Create topographic models of your project area with highly detailed digital surface models
  • Perform pre- and post-disturbance assessments of disturbances
  • Collect high-resolution near-infrared imagery and derive valuable indices such as the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) for monitoring vegetation health (see below figure).

  • Monitor crop growth and assess plant health
  • Point clouds can be used directly, or converted to a 2.5D DTM or DSM. These can be use to monitor power lines, or extract vegetation, buildings, or other important features.
