DroneMapper Signs Multi-Year Contract With The State of Utah - 1/17/13

January 28th, 2013

We are very pleased to announce that the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) has contracted with DroneMapper to provide imagery processing services for the next 5 years.  UDAF collects high resolution imagery for use in conservation planning and management of natural resources. As an example, DroneMapper recently processed an imagery set as part of Utah’s effort to mitigate salinity migration into the Colorado River.

UDAF conducted an evaluation of other service providers like DroneMapper and standalone imagery processing software packages, and found that DroneMapper meets their needs in terms of quality and affordability.

We look forward to providing services to the State of Utah and its researchers to keep its lands sustainable and productive. For more information on UDAF, please visit: http://ag.utah.gov/

Nice work man!

Are you going to be able to get a COA for this project? It seems like a perfect opportunity to utilize and demonstrate your capabilities, Utah has so much open country. Awesome news.

Part of that salinity mitigation project just caused a small earthquake near me, ha.

Pierre - the Utah opportunity sounds like an excellent opportunity for your company as well as the entire DIY Drone community.  I hope you are also able  to promote the use of small UAV's though this as well.  Best of luck to you!

There are 3 ways to make money: government, government, & government, but once you get in the door, you're set for a long time.  That must have taken a huge piece of real life negotiating instead of blog commenting.

Thats awesome! I live in Utah, maybe this will help get more people interested in what we do and also bring some good press for drones!
