Technology We Use
The process of UAS surveyingcomprises:flight and survey planning, field data acquisition, data processing, GIS analysis , mapping quality control and final product delivery.
Although the type of UAV selected for the mission is important, it is Seisland’s years of expertise that distinguish us from the competition. Other UAS providers are newcomers to surveying and mapping; at Seisland, it’s our core business.
Here is some basic information on each aircraft type and other technologies Seisland's surveys utilize and benefit from:
microdrones md4-1000 multi-rotor UAV
SenseFly eBee Plus fixed-wing UAV
The UAVs are equipped with either a high-resolution camera or a MicaSense RedEdge 3 multi-spectral camera. The multi-spectral camera’s capabilities include:
The camera’s five separate narrowband filtered lenses enable capture of specific data that can then be processed through various algorithms to provide specialized mapping that identifies specific conditions, such as crop damage or drought stress;
Following data capture, we use MicaSense Atlas. This powerful tool lets us process, store, manage, present, and perform analytics of our multispectral camera data, including generating accurate and meaningful orthomosaics and vegetation index maps along with quantitative information that can be used to properly interpret and understand crop field and vineyard conditions;
Pix4D mapping software
We use Pix4D mapping software to convert UAV-captured data into a variety of mapping products, including multispectral, topographic, and orthomosaic maps;
This combined suite of technologies creates Seisland’s unique ability to provide comprehensive UAS services that add value for its customers.
