Computer scientist Mark Pritt, along with colleagues at Lockheed Martin in Gaithersburg, Maryland, developed a new algorithm to handle thousands of images and speed up the process of creating an orthorectified map from UAV aerial imagery.
The technologies Early signs of precision agriculture included grid sampling, mapping for fertilizers, pH soil corrections and yield measurements. The advent of GPS with its accurate positioning and information systems pushed things on. Precision agriculture includes equipment-mounted hardware (such as GPS receivers), sensors and remote equipment that collect information which is then fed into a softwareenabled control system yielding data which can prompt any number of actions, including real-time adjustment of equipment and the creation of geospatial maps.
Now, agricultural sector shows raising numbers of M&A transactions which are successful in terms of fundraising for their projects. It gives grounds for assuming that amount of the companies involved in agriculture would be reducing within the next few years, while the volume of assets of the remaining participants would be growing up.
Vigilance has completed the second phase of its Hyperspectral Imaging Pilot. Hyperspectral Images contain up to thousands of small spectral bands to gain detailed information about the reflectance of the scene.
Hoje, a gestão integrada de operações florestais vem sendo desenvolvida por meio de uso de mapas. De longe, toda a produção pode ser controlada pelo envio de dados utilizando uma plataforma que, no caso da Imagem, é a Arc Gis – sigla em inglês para Sistema de Informações Geográficas. Por esta plataforma, é possível criar soluções começando pelo processo de operacionalização, por meio de amostragem do solo para gerar mapas de fertilidade.
