Our drones are extremely useful for analyzing vegetation densities for planning purposes, quoting the project and determining project success. Here’s an example of a lake that was inundated with floating algae, coontail and bushy pondweed. The client wanted quick results without harming the fish, so we opted to use the Truxor to perform triage to the lake.
We performed a drone survey of the aquatic vegetation while planning the project and a survey after the project was complete. The results are dramatic. In addition, both surveys and the triage work took a total of 14 hours to complete. An incredibly short turn around!
Our drones are equipped with hyperspectral sensors that help us detect and analyze aquatic vegetation. The purple line indicates the true shoreline around the lake.
