Turfgrass is one of the fastest affected and changing crops that is commonly grown. Due to this, being able to detect problems quickly, and, monitor changes daily is critical for perfect aesthetics and prevention of disaster. One way to monitor and prevent this is through the use of drones with multispectral sensors. By being able to accurately assess and track changes in the stress of turf grass, turf grass managers can accurately measure things such as compaction, water stress, nematodes, fungus, disease, and much more. By being able to accurately detect this stress, then, monitor daily change to gauge if the treatment methods are accurate, turf grass managers can finally have perfect greens and beautiful fairways!
In order to achieve this, a UAS solution should be able to quickly focus on the areas of interest and process the data very quickly with no headache. intelliSky Studio, is the perfect solution for golf courses. By using a small quadcopter in combination with one of our supported multi-spectral sensors, a user can fly directly down the center line of a golf hole and capture 3-4 images covering the span of most golf holes. Due to this, an entire golf course can be flown in a single flight from a quadcopter, requiring minutes, not hours of data collection. From there, using intelliSky Studio, these images can be processed in a matter of seconds and analyzed. Many golf courses, especially those throughout development complexes, can span over 500-1000 acres, however, only posses 100 acres or less of greens and fairway. Due to this, traditional photogrammetry is extremely wasteful, slow, and cumbersome. The best solution requires no overlap, near instant processing, and allows a user to focus on specific areas of interest. intelliSky Studio provides this perfect solution for golf course superintendents or service providers!
