UAVs Used for Agriculture Disaster Survey in Australia

A recent story from ABC Rural shows a example in Australia of UAVs doing disaster survey flights across agriculture areas after Cyclone Marcia.  The farm in the story was hit by mostly flood damage along with the winds from the cyclone. The video footage is linked to the story, it is a flight with standard video doing survey. It was not a traditional aerial survey with oblique or ortho imagery to analyze the damage.  Future UAV offerings towards agriculture can and should include traditional aerial survey flights with different sensor types.
