PrecisionHawk, DJI Partner To Bring Farmers A Complete Analytics Solution

By linking DJI’s commercial-grade drone hardware to PrecisionHawk’s DataMapper software platform, you now have a complete agricultural analytics solution.

“Farmers need real-time information about their crops, their fields, and their harvests, and DJI and PrecisionHawk are working together to give them what they need,” says Michael Perry, DJI’s director of strategic partnerships. “We are excited to make collecting and analyzing aerial data easier and more cost effective than ever. Because putting this technology within reach of working farmers will help them as well as everyone who relies on the crops they produce.”

DJI’s UAV platforms, such as the Matrice M100 and M600 series, allow for extensive customization, providing the flexibility to monitor crops, carry advanced sensors, or accomplish other tasks specific to each mission. The combined package will also include the new DataMapper Inflight app for data collection and a one-year subscription to DataMapper for data management and analysis. 

“This partnership is bringing the best of both worlds to the agriculture industry,” says Patrick Lohman, VP, partnerships at PrecisionHawk. “By combining our strengths – DJI’s world-renowned hardware and PrecisionHawk’s seamless software tools that bridge the gap from flight to geospatial data analysis – we are effectively eliminating any major barriers to entry and allowing the industry to begin adopting this technology in everyday workflows on a broader scale.”

With the DataMapper Inflight app, you can easily create a flight plan and autonomously collect geospatial data. The images are viewable within DataMapper where they are processed into 2-D and 3-D maps and ready for further analysis. You also have access to DataMapper’s library of analysis algorithms that provide detailed information around the major decisions you make throughout the season, such as optimizing inputs, reacting to threats, improving variable rate, increasing efficiency of crop scouting, and estimating yield.

“We believe, in order to promote widespread adoption of this technology, we need to build products and partnerships that empower the user,” Lohman continues. “In an effort to do so, the DataMapper Inflight app is now compatible with the entire line of DJI hardware to make it easier and more accessible than ever to collect actionable, aerial data.”

The new DataMapper Inflight app will be available for download on iOS and Android.
