The Technology

We use a DJI-Phantom 4 Pro+ V2.0 drone for aerial photo- and videography that lets us observe shoreline lineal footage to better assess surface water problems. This is an important benefit as the bird’s-eye view helps us identify water quality issues, eroding drainage systems contributing sediment to lakes, excessive sediment deposits, algae and invasive weed growth, and other issues that need correction. The drone can also track the extent of contaminant migration from surface and water quality spills and determine the contaminant effects on vegetation and water quality. You can learn about more in-depth information on how we use our drone on our services page.
