Today’s question is about creating water delineation models via UAV mapping. What sort of actionable insights will you get from a water delineation model? And, which are the best drone systems for this job?
Drone mapping is being used to acquire intelligence for little known applications. One such application is optimization of irrigation systems. Our caller is contemplating using the Phantom 4 Pro or the all new Mavic 2 to create a water delineation model. Is this a wise choice? Paul states important criteria that the caller should consider before buying a drone for this job.
We also reveal and discuss the capabilities of the 3 in 1 drone camera, Altum. What are the benefits of using the Altum for UAV mapping? Tune in to this informative packed episode. Thanks to the caller for the great question. Fly Safe!
