Episode Info: Latest practices for data acquisition and processing in agricultural drone mapping In today's show, we are joined by Dr. Greg Crutsinger, founder of Scholarfarms to discuss how to collect and assess data using agricultural drones. We discuss the P4 Multispectral, drone mapping software - Pix4DFields and Pix4DReact, and recommend the best workflow for agricultural drone mapping. We start this show by discussing DJI's latest agricultural drone, the P4 Multispectral in great detail. Aggressively priced at $7,000, will this new DJI drone prove to be a good alternative to proven multispectral drones like the Wingtra and eBEE X? In the next segment of the show, Greg explains in simple terms how multispectral cameras are used to determine the health of plants. Listeners will learn how multispectral drones equipped with light sensors are used to create a reflectance map to eventually provide actionable insights to farms. Greg then provides some expert tips for selecting the best possible agricultural drone. Do consumer drones like Mavic and Phantom have any useful agricultural applications? And, are you better off using a multirotor over an expensive fixed-wing? Next, we discuss drone mapping software. Will the use of Pix4DFields and Pix4D React result in a compressed and efficient workflow? Apart from agricultural drones, we also discuss how drones are gradually proving to be an indispensable tool for disaster relief. Specifically, Greg gives a first-hand account of how he used drone mapping to help out at the Paradise Campfire incident.
