Advanced photogrammetry software firm Pix4D has expanded its operations within the UAV sector with the launch of its first dedicated drone mapping service for agriculture.
Equipped with a new fast processing that provides accurate and instant results and an easy-to-use interface with tools tailored to agricultural workflows, it claims to be able to manage everything from simple to complex scenarios.
“Our solution fits the needs of the agriculture industry and we believe Pix4Dfields will become a staple tool, just like a meter is for a construction site worker,” Christoph Strecha, Pix4D CEO, stated.
The launch follows on from the company opening a new office in Berlin. The new office is fully dedicated to understanding the agriculture industry and creating a product that caters to all the main agricultural practices.
The idea behind Pix4Dfields comes from two observations; the need to produce accurate, repeatable measurements of crop health and the need to produce results efficiently and rapidly in the field, while performing more detailed analysis in the office. Both of these factors are essential to support decision making of the farmers, agronomists or the breeders.
