  • Change Detection Analysis     
  • River/Fish Habitat Mapping Analysis                                                                                                             

 

Natural Resource Analytics 

AggieAir has been capturing aerial imagery of rivers and wetland environments for over 10 years. Whether it's acquiring imagery of dynamic river systems for fish habitat assessment proposals or investigating invasive riparian vegetation control issues, AggieAir is able to provide real time data to researchers. 

  • Monitoring In-Stream Fish Habitats
  • Mapping Invasive Aquatic Weeds
  • Assessments of River Channel Migration Due To Riparian Vegetation Removal
  • Wetland Monitoring and Riparian Vegetation Assessments
  • Streambank Erosion/Degradation Assessments    
  • Fire Assessment & Long Term Recovery Options
  • Historical Imagery Analysis

Precision Agriculture 

Precision agriculture (micro-management farming) is gaining momentum because of modern technology and verifiable results. In addition to its impact on agricultural and economic outcomes, precision agriculture facilities better management of water, fertilizer/pesticides, and other farming activities. 

  • Leaf Area Index
  • Phenotyping
  • Biomass Estimation
  • Nitrogen Content
  • Chlorophyll Content
  • Soil Moisture Content
  • Crop Counting                                                                                                                                     

 


 

Aquatic Environments

Monitoring aquatic environments has become more and more important in recent years due to issues of drought and drought management. and provides managers of these natural resources.

  • Sediment Load Study
  • Wetland Management/Mitigation
  • Bio Fuel Investigation
  • Wetland Vegetation Classification/Change Detection
