Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) agriculture software simplifies drone flight planning, agricultural monitoring, and data analysis.
Implementing UAV, or drone software systems, gives farmers and agricultural service providers actionable intelligence to optimize inputs and reduce costs. These systems typically coordinate, adjust, and monitor flight plans; take infrared photos; and analyze the field-level data via smartphone, tablet, or computer. Drone agriculture software often integrates with farm management software solutions, creating near real-time reports designed to be transferred to precision agriculture software and equipment. Agricultural data is accumulated over a flight either offline or online. If offline, flight plans and data are saved for recurring surveys and later analysis. Farmers link notes and pictures taken in their field to UAV-collected images to create a thorough picture—this can be especially beneficial for weather-impacted crop loss. The extent of damage from a hailstorm, for example, can be better determined and analyzed from the combined aerial and on-the-ground perspectives. UAV software also features flight monitoring analytics including altitude, ground speed, mission progress, and battery life.
UAV agriculture software collects and analyzes agricultural data to enhance precision agriculture, giving farmers and agricultural service providers the ability to make the most of every input used to grow crops. In addition to their use in agriculture, these systems are often utilized in construction, mining, mapping, security, and science and research.
