About the service
The number of plants per unit area is one of the key factors in crop formation. Plant counting is used to assess the quality of sowing, seed germination, the state of entry into winter, overwintering, and to forecast the harvest.
Plant counting is carried out using aerial scanning from low altitudes and creation of a map of ultra-high resolution (0.5-1 cm/pixel). Computer methods of classification and pattern recognition make it possible to identify and count each plant on the studied site.
what we do
After receiving the coordinates of the contour of the field (fields) from the customer, an individual scanning plan is agreed upon, taking into account the phase of plant development, the area of the objects, the location of the object (objects) and the weather.
Execution of works:
Our flight team goes to the object and scans the field from low altitudes. These scans are transferred to our data processing specialists.
As a result, a map of the density of plants is provided with a given accuracy (for example, the number of plants in each square meter of the field) in geoTIF and KMZ formats or in another format, as agreed with the customer. In addition, a report on the work performed is provided in PDF format. Timeliness of providing results:
The result will be ready 72 hours after the scan.
One flight team can scan up to 2,000 hectares per day.
Recommendations for use:
It is recommended to scan the plants in the initial phases of development (before the crop has closed) to control sowing and seed germination, before entering winter and after exiting winter to assess overwintering.
