Additional Hardware Required?

Hi all. I am new to drone piloting. Researching potential applications for this great technology, and necessary equipment.

For those of you who map for agriculture, what percentage of DD pilots utilize NIR cameras vs those using stock DJI drone cameras? How important is NDVI capabilityfor a serious ag drone service provider?

Similarly, with regards to mapping for construction and mining, what percentage of jobs require a mapping-grade GPS and GCPs?

Hi @LancerX,

Thanks for swinging by the DroneDeploy Forum. I invite you to take a look at our Resources or Blog pages as places to start. We have a couple of guides with comparisons of different equipment and their use cases.

Hope this helps. :slight_smile:


Thanks @Christina. I have been diving into those - lots of great writeups! Also plan to hit all the webinars as time permits.

Also looking for feedback from the operator experience as well. Thanks all!
