Today’s episode is about NDVI mapping. Should you use NDVI mapping for golf course maintenance? Or, are you better off relying on traditional practices and tools?
Our caller, Ken from NJ has again come up with a great question. Ken is questioning if it is feasible to use NDVI mapping for golf course maintenance. Why do golf courses still rely on traditional tools like probes to measure moisture? We discuss if there any practical benefits to replacing these traditional tools with drones. We also discuss the immense potential of drones in sports analytics. Tune in to this extremely informative episode now. Thanks to Ken from NJ for the question. Fly Safe!
