Multispectral for Drone Operators
Using multispectral cameras on drones enables pilots to collect valuable agricultural data. This new 3-day course teaches the basics of drone multispectral imaging for precision agriculture. Students will learn how to create reflectance maps, index maps (NDVI, NDRE), and high-resolution orthomosaics. These are vital skills for professional agricultural analysis and reporting.
The Multispectral for Drone Operators course is ideal for those looking to conduct agricultural inspections. By capturing and converting drone images, students will be able to create precise maps, determine crop health, and identify both yield estimations and pest infested areas. The course also covers light levels, overlapping flights and processing formulas – all key factors in agricultural surveys.
Core Modules Include:
- Basics of Multispectral imaging
- Camera set-up, Operation and Integration
- Autonomous Flight Planning
- Image Processing and Analysis
