Integration marks first step in plans to seamlessly share drone map data between agX and DroneDeploy
Stillwater, Okla., April 07, 2017 – STILLWATER, OK – APRIL 7, 2017 – DroneDeploy, the leading cloud software platform for commercial drones today announced an integration with agX® to help growers more easily capture field maps and analyze aerial data. agX users can now share field boundaries saved in agX with DroneDeploy to simplify the planning of drone mapping flights. Over time, agX and DroneDeploy plan to integrate further to allow seamless sharing of drone images from DroneDeploy to agX.
/EIN News/ — “This integration will provide agX users an efficient method of combining high-quality UAV [unmanned aerial vehicle] imagery from DroneDeploy with other agronomic data to assist in decision-making that can add to a grower’s bottom line,” said Shawn Peterson, Business Development Lead at agX. “Integrating quality imagery into an operation brings tremendous value by showing the varying conditions of the crop throughout the field. We are excited DroneDeploy will join the platform to offer imagery solutions that bring value to UAV applications.”
agX users can exchange field boundaries between DroneDeploy and other agX Compliant applications – allowing them to centrally store, access and share field boundaries. In the future, DroneDeploy’s integration will offer users the ability to share field data and imagery layers.
DroneDeploy makes drones accessible and productive tools that help growers save time and create actionable insights. Using DroneDeploy, a grower can automatically fly and capture drone imagery, create a field map and analyze crop variability in hours to help make timely management decisions.
“DroneDeploy makes it fast and easy for growers to capture aerial data,” said Scott Lumish, Vice President of Business Development at DroneDeploy, “and integrations with tools like agX help growers turn that data into action.”
agX helps growers and service providers stay connected to various precision agricultural applications. Users can access and share their data within agX Compliant applications to save time and reduce duplicate data entry. Anyone can create a free agX account at www.account.agXPlatform.com.
Support for DroneDeploy imagery transfer will be added to agX in early of summer 2017.
