Research drones provide an unparalleled ability to create high resolution maps of vegetation cover, including the three-dimensional structure and chemical properties invisible to the naked eye. We use quad-copter drones and multi-spectral cameras to map crop health, surface hydrology, canopy structure, and a host of other applications. In addition to training, we offer drone mapping services to ANR staff and their collaborators. Read more.
