“The purpose of these meetings is to explore how to make agriculture more climate resilient and productive,” said Fernandez. “How can we innovate and contribute to more efficient markets? I believe Pix4D’s agriculture solution is part of that innovation and has great potential.”
Pix4Dag, a software solution that provides detailed crop information from drone imagery, converts multispectral images into accurate reflectance and index maps, and standard images into high resolution orthomosaic maps. These specialized outputs are then easily integrated into agriculture operations by the grower, enabling them to better evaluate crop health, produce tailored fertilizer application maps, and glean other information.
“What’s particularly interesting about this drone mapping solution is that it has the potential to democratize precision agriculture,” said Fernandez. “Growers don’t have to have to have a specific platform, camera, or drone, and don’t need to be scientific experts.”
Findings and recommendations of the Panel will be considered at the 20th annual session of the Commission in May 2017 and may form the basis of resolutions submitted for consideration by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
