Learn Drone Mapping for Agriculture

 

GAME CHANGER FOR AGRIBUSINESS IN THE AGE OF DRONES & DATA

DATE : 18th JUNE – 22th JUNE 2018 | VENUE : ISKANDAR SPACE, AFINITI MEDINI

 

Deploy Drones for Data Capture

Participants will receive hands-on guidance and training on pre-flight, in-flight and post-flight operating procedures for drone deployment in an actual agricultural environment.

Process & Analyse Geospatial Outputs

Participants will learn the theory and methodologies on how to generate geospatial outputs and the possible applications in farming operations.

Implement Effective Farm Management

Participants will gain thorough understanding on drone deployment workflow and have full control in using aerial robotics and data analytics for effective farm management.

Description

Drone aerial mapping is a real game changer for anyone managing land. In addition to a variety of processing outputs, the ability to survey large areas of land rapidly is paramount in agriculture.

 

This 5-day course is designed to equip farmers, drone operators and GIS experts with the essential know-how and practical experience on drone mapping projects specific to the agriculture sector.

The course curriculum is formulated based on insights accumulated over years by Garuda Robotics operations team in mapping agricultural lands. Working closely with farmers on the ground, we had accustomed the operating procedures based on actual agricultural environments.

Professional Data Capture, Processing & Analysis

The participants will undergo both theory and hands-on sessions throughout the entire deployment workflow from flying drones and capturing data, to processing and analysing outputs so as to ensure full comprehension of operating procedures as well as to avoid common mistakes made by beginners.

Smart Farming with Drones & Data

The course participants will be exposed to various geospatial outputs relevant to crop-growers such as orthomosaic maps, NDVI maps, contour maps, etc. and the insights farmers could derive from them to better their farming operations by leveraging on aerial robotics (i.e. drones).
