Drones in Natural Resource Management

Drones enable large-scale, detailed surveys of natural resources, providing accurate maps and models as well as telemetry data.

 Forest Management

Water Resource Management

Deploy drones with high-resolution visual sensors and multispectral sensors to map forests, sample vegetation, or monitor and manage the health of forests and wildlife.

Map around surface water, outfalls and more with drones to obtain data on-demand, facilitating resource management and compliance monitoring across vast areas.

 Traditional Challenges in Forest Management

How Drones Help with Forest Management

  • Mapping heavily-vegetated, often mountainous areas on foot is time-consuming, expensive, and dangerous to the operators.
  • The data collected could be limited in both scope and scale, making it difficult to create comprehensive profiles that can be shared with different teams.
  • Quickly take off and fly over rivers, lakes, reservoirs and more to capture data using automated flights, reducing costs and cutting fieldwork hours.
  • Aerial imagery helps classify water bodies, estimate water coverage, and monitor sewage.
