Farmers should be cautious of “off-the-shelf” drone image products, as they are unlikely to provide accurate information about the health of their crops. Despite the potential benefits of drone imagery to farmers, who seek regularly updated maps of individual trees and plants, this research shows that the multi-spectral images collected from drones must be processed with proper radiometric correction to accurately map and measure tree and plant properties. Correcting for variations due to drone-based image data collecting practice and associated variations in solar illumination properties was identified as the largest challenge to deliver image data suited to mapping changes in crop properties over time. Such inconsistencies could result in farmers being given the wrong information about their crops if the data are not processed by experienced operators with remote sensing expertise. View Paper here.
