Pix4D and Parrot Release Precision Agriculture Solutions

Feb 9, 2016 -- Today Pix4D launches Pix4Dmapper Ag: a photogrammetric software that converts multispectral images into agriculture-specific maps for better crop management and analysis. The software is being released in conjunction with Sequoia: a multispectral sensor from Parrot designed specifically for precision agriculture.

“The most important part about this joint release is the fact that the low price gives it the possibility of being deployed at the farming level,” says Pix4D founder and CEO Christoph Strecha, “and not just the research level.” With a 16MP RGB camera, 5 Ag-dedicated sensors (Red, Green, NIR, Red Edge, Luminosity), 64GB built-in memory, GPS and IMU, Sequoia weighs only 110 grams and can be mounted on any drone.

Farmers and agronomists will be able to easily capture multispectral information of their fields by flying a drone with Sequoia, then use Pix4Dmapper Ag to turn those images into geometrically and radiometrically accurate maps. The orthomosaics, NDVI maps and reflectance maps produced by Pix4Dmapper Ag give a broad aerial perspective and insight into plant health that’s not visible to the naked eye. Applications range from digital scouting to vigor analysis and production of fertilizer application maps for machinery.

“This technology is intended to increase accessibility to the end user,” says Strecha. “That’s the potential.”

A compelling offer Pix4Dmapper Ag (ver. 2.1 Beta) and Sequoia are available for pre-order as of today in Pix4D’s online store with a special launch promotion for a limited time.
