SLANTVIEW – Smarter Analytics for Airborne Agronomy
SLANTVIEW delivers a powerful suite of analytics tools that automates the processing of all of your SLANTRANGE sensor data. SLANTVIEW introduces new algorithms for intelligent data compression and aggregation, feature extraction, and signals classification that minimize computing requirements. So processing can start on-board the aircraft, in the sensor, and complete within minutes of the flight on a low-cost laptop or tablet, anywhere in the world.
SLANTVIEW is the analytics solution that will enable small UAS measurements to reach all the world’s farmers, not just those with access to high-end computing resources.
Valuable New Types of Crop Information
What would you like to know? That of course depends on what types of crops you’re raising, what time of year it is, where you’re located, and a number of other variables. Your information needs are specific and evolving.
SLANTVIEW is the only airborne agronomy analysis tool that has the versatility to serve those changing needs with more specific and actionable types of information. Your needs are specific, so what is it you’d like to know?
For many crops, the first few weeks after planting are a critical stage during which plant populations and weed pressures need to be evaluated. SLANTVIEW automates individual plant counting and weed classification with airborne imagery to provide a complete picture of field conditions just after emergence.
This information layer is designed for use in specific row crops under pre-defined conditions of measurement.
Full Season Health Surveys
Is NDVI all that you need? Because high resolution multispectral imagery can deliver so much more. SLANTVIEW’s full season health surveys include a suite of crop information layers for a comprehensive look at evolving conditions.
This information layer enables more efficient and accurate scouting by providing earlier and more comprehensive detection of stress conditions than possible with simple 2-band indices like NDVI. Contact us to discuss custom tuning for specific crops or conditions.
Special Signals Classification
How large is my greensnap/lodging problem?
Which stress areas are due to this infection?
Where is a particular noxious weed emergent?
Algorithms newly embedded into SLANTVIEW enable signals training and classification for a wide range of specialized capabilities. In the example at right, the software was trained to separate generic “low-NDVI” areas from areas with an outbreak of a specific weed type, all with just a few clicks by the user.
Similar signals training and classification has been used on numerous applications in different crop types. What is it you’re looking for?
High Resolution Imagery
It’s hard to beat centimeter-resolution imagery for perspective in diagnosing field conditions. In addition to our information layers, SLANTVIEW also delivers your full-resolution results without the image compression that compromises other techniques. See an area of concern in your maps? Instant zoom provides the complete picture on conditions in your field.
The Most Efficient Data Collection & Processing Solution Available
Agronomic data is both precious and perishable. So minimizing the time spent collecting and processing data is a primary objective for SLANTRANGE. We’ve developed new technologies that will not only dramatically reduce your time spent collecting data, but will deliver results in minutes, anywhere.
Up to 4x Reduction in Data Collection Costs
Traditional mapping techniques don’t make sense for agriculture. SLANTRANGE’s patent pending algorithms require only 20% overlap, compared to industry standards of 70-80%. That means you can cover a field 4x faster than using similar sensors at similar resolutions. Put another way, your quadcopter system can start competing with fixed wing systems for area coverage. What will you do with all the extra time?
No Network? No Problem!
The cloud just doesn’t reach everyone. Uploading gigabytes of your raw data for processing is a costly and sometimes unavailable option. SLANTVIEW processing is so much more efficient, it can be done in minutes right in the field. No network connection required. No additional work back at the office. Collect, analyze, and act all in one visit to the field.
Total Data Portability
Have your own analytics software? SLANTVIEW also exports full-resolution reflectance data with all the embedded metadata necessary to build your own maps and conduct your own analysis.
