Hi, I'm a GIS Technician at a local county government land conservation department and we are considering using a UAV to conduct agricultural field inspections and some other land inventory projects. We are looking at only gathering basic photography and video at this time using a quadcopter.
I'm trying to put together a basic benefit/cost analysis for our board and I'm trying to quantify how much area (in acres) could be covered during a basic 15-20 minute flight?
Let's assume flying at 100 foot altitude. I'm assuming that would give us adequate resolution for the typical things such as erosion/flooding that we are looking for. Anybody with direct experience using the UAV for ag inspection that could provide this type of information or other suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
