Drone Technology Optimizes Vineyard Performance

by | Jun 6, 2017

Noveltis specializes in processing, modeling and simulating environmental data in the fields of land surfaces, oceans and atmosphere. The company has been partnering with SimActive to monitor and improve vineyard performance.

Noveltis, a French company, has been using SimActive's Correlator3D software to help with precision viticulture. Based on multispectral drone imagery, mapping products are generated to determine vine health and detect missing plants.

SimActive automates our production process for extracting DSMs, DTMs and orthomosaics, said Florian Jeliazovski, project manager at Noveltis. We greatly improved the detection of vine rows, and have been able to provide quantitative and qualitative information to our customers.

Correlator3D and UAV technology allow efficient monitoring of high-value crops, said Philippe Simard, president of SimActive. We are proud to support Noveltis in its innovative application of our software.
