Utilizing UAV Photography and Mapping
Frontera Forest Solutions is at the forefront of using UAV technology as its benefits become more widely understood in forestry.
With all Frontera staff being certified basic UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone) pilots at minimum, drones are a key aspect of our fieldwork; available for use at any time for any project. UAV allows us to capture high-quality photos that help us better understand the forest types and identify problem points within the forest.
Derek and Zoltan, our advanced UAV pilots, have the capacity to expand upon our use of drones greatly, advancing our outputs and developing highly effective tools as a result of our fieldwork.
Why does this innovation matter?
Using georeferencing, photographs are associated with their corresponding coordinates, which can then be turned into georeferenced maps in which the map's features match the real-world data. This helps to maintain accuracy when it comes to the constantly changing environment.
