Basic visual imagery involves the creation of communication materials using unmodified, unaltered, or ‘raw’ visual or video imagery. This can be applied to a limited number of sensors, including Red, Green, Blue sensors (RGB), and Thermal sensors.
General Analytics involves the creation of communication materials using only data collected using UAV sensors, which are also automatically or manually processed using computer software that does not require software manipulation through machine learning/training. By this definition all sensor types are included, including sensor types which require more sophisticated forms of computer processing (ie hyperspectral sensors, and LIDAR sensors).
Advanced Analytics involves creating communication material by using data collected using UAV sensors as well as supplementary information, additional imagery, or relevant spatial data (including ground-truthed data). Advanced Analytics also include applications that require manipulation of software operations where sensory imagery is coupled with machine learning/training approaches.
This platform is a process, which also includes the skills of a collaborative network of industry and environmental professionals, academics, technicians and technologists that together help land stewards to create custom communications materials about ecosystem services
All our aerial services forms are included in this new Platform
We have a growing collaborative network team that we use within this platform that provide the skills, tools, and techniques for our platform, which you can check out here!
We work on a project-by-project basis to support stewardship activities through existing programs for funding available to farmers and Indigenous communities (e.g. grant applications). Our current pricing for aerial imagery and analysis services is based on providing our clients with flexible and affordable options that are competitively priced for returning state-of-the-art deliverables.
This is for projects that involve many visits and continuous involvement for communications and evaluation. For projects involving >1yr, our services are charged at the base rate of 8% of total project costs that are dispersed across following years according to a Phase 1 UAS communications plan (with Analysis services of video creation, 3D predictive modeling, or Advanced Analytics extra).
We are flexible.. Drones and drone work is complicated. Think about what you need done and how you want to handle the sensory/visual products that come from our drones. We like to give you some options that works around your own skill sets and knowledge base. After all, you are the experts of your land. We really don't mind if you make our lives easier by processing your own imagery and data ;)
