Make An Impact
We are Meteorite, a startup company aiming to advancing precision agriculture for mid-sized farms with our LiDAR mapping technology.
Services we plan to offer
See the contours of your field on a color-coded map so that you can optimize your watering and drainage strategies.
Meteorite will come to your farm and map the specified area with our LiDAR and multispectral camera drone. In addition to photographic mapping of the area, you will also receive a color-coded elevation map. During a post-mapping consultation, we will discuss the map with you, making sure you can make the most of your data.
Vegetation Health Monitoring
See your crop's performance with this periodic mapping service.
Keep track of your crops with our monthly or quarterly service. We will periodically map your fields, showing you exactly how much your crops have grown in different parts of your field on a color-coded map. This can help you monitor the effectiveness of your drainage, watering, and chemical strategies by showing you exactly where your crops are underperforming and where they are thriving!
How we will do it
Three Dimensional Mapping
The same precision technology that is used in the sensors that keep you safe in a self-driving vehicle can be modified to serve the agricultural industry. Using lasers to sense distance, we can deliver a high resolution view of the land, or the crops themselves.
Drone Mounted Precision
We will fly our LiDAR over farm fields collecting elevation data from the ground beneath, so that customers can see where they may have drainage problems or advantages.
For vegetation health monitoring, we will collect data multiple times thoughout the growning season, focusing our LiDAR on the plants themselves, showing plant dimensions that indicate crop performance in each area.
Understandable Data Summary
After we map a field, we will help customers understand the data. We can provide an understandable visual model of fields and vegetation, and we will discuss it in a post-flight consultation to make sure customers can make the most out of the results.
