Drone Software Integration to Enhance Data, Imagery Collection

SLANTRANGE Inc., a drone-based remote systems provider for the agricultural sector, has released a new integration solution that enables SLANTRANGE data products to be used within the DroneDeploy drone software platform.

Utilizing DroneDeploy’s new GeoTIFF Upload feature, complete SLANTRANGE maps, which are processed at the point of collection, can now be directly uploaded to a user’s DroneDeploy account for viewing, annotating, sharing, archiving and synchronizing across multiple devices, the company says.

DroneDeploy provides a suite of mobile and desktop tools that allow drone operators to plan and execute their automated flights, upload the imagery collected from the drone’s camera to cloud-based servers to be processed into large area maps, and analyze the 2D maps and 3D models. The GeoTIFF Upload feature, according to SLANTRANGE, allows users to upload completed maps that have been generated using other software tools.

All SLANTRANGE data products, including maps of plant population, weed locations, stress conditions, crop canopy closure, yield prediction and user-created custom filters, are fully compatible with this new feature, the company asserts.

“The DroneDeploy platform adds new levels of efficiency and accessibility to that offering, so agricultural drone operators can be more effective in providing long-term value to growers and agronomists across the globe,” states Michael Ritter, CEO of SLANTRANGE.
