APPLICATIONS

Surveying

Accurate and detailed drone imagery allows for fast and efficient surveying of forests. Allowing for accurate decision making and assessment of forestry needs.

Inspecting and Monitoring

With the flexibility of launching a drone at any time, inspecting and monitoring an area is easier than ever. Data over time to ensures that any efforts are being as effective as possible.

Conservation

Drone data enables a range of tasks to be performed, from health analysis and biomass estimation to inventory management, planting campaign planning, and impact assessments.

There are many reasons why professionals such as environmental engineers and scientific researchers are increasingly using drones, often in the place of terrestrial surveying equipment or traditional aerial imaging services. The use of drones allows forest owners to have rapid, flexible, and customized inventory projects from which accurate data is produced for planning the forestry activities.
Drones can be launched on demand, for a variety of forestry efforts. Small and light electric-powered drones, especially fixed-wing aircraft, make little noise and are often bird-shaped, meaning animals on the ground are rarely disturbed by these tools, if they notice them at all. Rotary (helicopter) drone systems are best suited to monitoring and charting smaller areas, enabling operators to capture video imagery and respond to this feedback live, while fixed-wing drones—such as senseFly’s eBee—allow users to map larger areas in a single autonomous flight.
