The Best Farm Mapping Service with the most Affordable Pricing
Why Use Agridroneco for Farm Maps?
Agridroneco is a company that prides itself on being an industry leader in farm mapping services. We are experts who understand the importance of utilizing the latest technology but also want to make sure that it is practical and affordable for NZ farmers.
We believe that all farmers, regardless of the size of their operation, should have access to the best farm mapping services, and that’s exactly what we provide. So, if you’re looking to optimize your farm’s productivity and profitability with a new farm map, look no further than Agridroneco
Drone farm mapping is certainly the best way to update your farm map. Satellite images on Google Earth are often several years old and subsequently out of date. A drone farm map will provide you an accurate picture of exactly how your farm looks on the day.
Get your farm map up to date and loaded into your FEP to comply with the latest environmental regulations.
As the drone flies across your farm, it automatically detects the terrain of the land and provides us with the data to make a 3D image of your farmland. This is very helpful for identifying steeper areas that may be unsuitable for cropping, mowing, fertilizer spreading, or even grazing.
Additionally the contour information also enables us to calculate the areas within each paddock that are suitable for machinery to operate over. This can be anywhere with a slope less than 15-20 degrees, depending on your preference.
Compared to satellite imagery, which usually has a GPS (Global Positioning System) accuracy of 1 to 5 meters, our advanced surveying drones enabled with RTK (Real-Time Kinematics) have an accuracy of 1 to 3 cm.
Obviously, as more farm machinery becomes GPS-guided and automated in the future, the map accuracy of your farm is subsequently going to become more important.
You may be thinking that Drone Farm Mapping is expensive, however we have found that our pricing is not that different from the more established farm mapping companies in NZ who only offer satellite imagery services.
Our pricing starts at $4.00 per hectare, plus a $500 base fee. Please get in touch if you would like to know more.
Our advanced mapping drones are not limited only to farm mapping.
If you would like to get the latest aerial imagery of your asset, whether it’s a forestry block, orchard, commercial building, architecturally designed building, restoration project, or quarry, then get in touch with us and we will tailor a solution to fit your needs.
We have bases in the Bay of Plenty, Wakaito and Canterbury and are happy to go the extra mile to get your farm mapped.
Our standard farm mapping package includes PDF copies of the standard farm map, contour map and the aerial image of your farm. We also include the digital shapefile of your paddocks which we can send to your fertiliser company or council.
