UK Consulate in Chicago learning Precision Agriculture Techniques in Devils Lake, ND

The British Consulate in Chicago came to Devils Lake, North Dakota this week to Lake Region State College to learn precision agriculture techniques, which includes low altitude drones (below 500ft) and satellite data to maximize crop yield.  As in my last post, lower quality (due to smaller camera size) imagery can also produce derived LiDAR data with AutoDTM.

When the British Consulate members return home and/or write their reports, more British farmers will want to expand their precision agriculture and the GIS/Geomatics/Meteorology involved to grow a good crop and maximize yields.  Another growing market.
