imaging at UK golf course

By deploying multi-spectral imaging in-depth and detailed analysis of ground conditions can be completed helping provide valuable data to aid decision making and ensure financial resources are allocated correctly to the areas that are needed.

Multispectral imaging is the process of detecting and analysing the specific wavelengths of light which are not visible to the human eye. This is particularly useful for analysing the chlorophyll content of crops and turf as an indicator of health.

It can be used to detect, map and count wavelengths reflected by specific plants, trees or even used to detect more unusual features such as ground nesting bird eggs within an arable field, rare strains of sphagnum moss or sea grass. Within the forestry industry, it is an ideal solution for tree species identification, wind damage and disease detection. We have recently worked on a UK golf course to better identify the specific areas for attention across the whole site.

The main advantage of multi-spectral imaging is that the data provides valuable insight into the specific areas of concern within the survey areas. This allows for accurate spot spraying or fertiliser application removing the need for blanket coverage which could be wasting time and money on areas that do not require attention. The result from this could be increased crop yields plus a reduction in costs, carbon footprint and chemical usages.
