UAS, Aerial, & Satellite Imagery
Field Imagery, when viewed strictly as a “pretty picture” has been a stumbling block to producers for over a decade. However, major advancements in platforms and cameras are causing a tremendous interest in imagery. The time to extract value from those “pretty pictures” is here. Imagery technologies continue to advance, strengthening the return on your investment by opening doors to improving efficiency and protect your crop.
Image processing companies will tell you, and Crop Quest agrees, the platform for collecting an image is not important.
Knowing when to make use of the various platforms to get the desired quality is valuable. The platform used to collect the image affects the detail and timeliness of the image. We provide access to imagery collected from three platforms to provide high quality imagery of various resolutions at key times. This enables us to focus attention on putting imagery to work for the benefit of the producer, and allow the pilots and satellite providers to focus on what they do best – collecting images in a timely manner.
We recognize that some producers prefer to purchase a UAS and to pilot and collect field images on their own. We are able to accommodate you as well by:
Hosting UAS training
Sharing flight experiences
Recommending UAS platforms
Designing agronomic services that turn “pretty pictures” into actionable imagery
