Today's show is about drones for agriculture and construction. What are some of the best (and more affordable) options for applications like agricultural spraying, NDVI, and construction mapping? Our caller for today, Peter, all the way from Hungary has an excellent question about using drones for agriculture and construction. Peter recently went through our Comprehensive Mapping course and is now keen to start a drone mapping business, and he is on a tight budget of $9,000. Specifically, he is planning on providing his drone services to the agricultural and construction sectors. On today's show, we first discuss the Phantom 4 Pro RTK. Is the P4 RTK a good choice for mapping large tracts of land? Can you expect to achieve cm-level accuracy with this much-hyped DJI drone? We move on to discuss the nuances of some other larger, more expensive drones like the DJI Agras, the Yamaha RMAX, and the P4 Multispectral. Towards the end, we have an animated discussion about the traditional surveying industry as we know it - and why it is ripe for disruption. Enjoy!
