SimActive Inc., developer of photogrammetry software, announced use of its software for precision agriculture in Brazil by Portal Produtos Agropecuários Ltda (Portal). Drone data is transformed into useful and pertinent information for farmers with Correlator3D, leading to optimized yields and reduced costs for the agricultural season.
The identification of the presence and damage caused by centipedes was one such example. When plant samples from the field were collected to identify the source of the growing anomaly, Portal was able to fly and generate mosaics to spot the problem within 24 hours using Correlator3D and their drones.
“Correlator3D is agile, reliable, and efficient in processing the high-resolution UAV data we collect, generating high quality mosaics every time”, said Valdir Rago, Agronomic Engineer at Portal. “We tested other commercial UAV data processing apps and found that Correlator3D was the best at delivering the results we need. The friendly interface, also accessible in Portuguese, along with round the clock support from SimActive’s partner in Brazil, ENGESAT, put them in a different league.”
