Use Case

DRAINAGE

This example is a testament to how elevation maps are insufficient for analysing where moisture is present. With the thermal sensor, we’re able to see sub-terrain level activity. In this case, this 84-acre soybean field is on a hill. The peak of the hill is an expected red color indicating heat, while the base of the hill nearest to the road is an unexpected shade of red. This means that drainage tile has been installed. Adversely, the coolest part of the field indicates moisture and is negatively impacting the crop health (per the NDVI image). Since installing drainage tile is a costly proposition, using the thermal image to ensure efficient placement maximizes ROI.
