This course was designed by UAV remote sensing specialists to cover all the basics that you need to conduct your own UAV missions and analyze the data to support farm decisions and conduct agricultural research.

Join our comprehensive course to explore the full spectrum of precision agriculture using UAV data. Starting with the fundamentals of UAV mission planning and map creation, we'll guide you through leveraging maps for valuable insights into crops, fields, and farmland.

Explore the vast potential of UAV data in precision agriculture as we delve into diverse applications. Master the art of estimating bare soil in fields, crafting vegetation masks, and estimating crop biomass and yield. Immerse yourself in the realms of optimizing plant health, ensuring precise fertilizer distribution, and detecting crop water use and water stress for more efficient irrigation.

If you're looking for a thorough introduction to UAV deployment and data analysis or aiming to harness UAV data for smarter agricultural practices, this course is tailored just for you!
