AgriSense uses UAVs to complement the field data collection by acquiring time series of extremely high resolution remote sensing imagery (4 cm resolution) over a number of 1x1 km test sites. The UAV imagery supports the satellite image interpretation. The project also explores the use of UAVs for cropping system mapping and crop condition assessments from multi-spectral UAV imagery. Both fixed-wing (small airplanes) and rotary wing (helicopter-type) UAVs are being used.
