Precision Agriculture with MapTiler
Published Apr 08, 2016
MapTiler helps with the fast delivery of aerial images taken with multispectral crop monitoring sensors, usually carried by a drone or an aircraft.
After quick processing with our software, the outcomes are available online to farmers and end-users - with the fast map tile hosting on Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage. See an example: http://agricam-template.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/
Such maps can be accessed online from any mobile device, showing your own GPS position on the location.
MapTiler Start or Plus on a desktop computer can be used for publishing similar geodata and creating a customer portal with selected maps.
Automation of the process on the server side, including upload of map tiles to a cloud hosting, can be done with a command line using MapTiler Pro - integrated into a workflow or company backend.
Many thanks to agricam.co.il for valuable inputs on the process and for the sample imagery.
