Profile Information

About Me:
I am an economist with a special interest in food security and agricultural productivity enhancement. I've also worked as a Business Analyst and Systems Analyst and I designed a niche governmental performance system. In my spare time I enjoy hang gliding and, when I'd rather not fly myself, I fly one of my RC planes or multicopters.

Besides their role in helping to obtain high resolution multi-spectral imagery, UAVs can also assist with land mapping, which can contribute to optimum land use policy.

In September 2014 we launched our agricultural drone:

John, I'm glad to meet you, even if only virtually at this stage.  I am from SA, but live in Kansas now. We do research on UAV-based vegetation analysis, and I'd like to know more about your experiences looking at vines etc. Maybe I will see you one day when visiting SA. I go there at least once a year. Missing the place terribly!
