Precision agriculture technology is more than just another industry buzzword. The right tools can make a big difference to your workday – and you’re bottom line.

Whether you’re scouting and understanding your fields, validating an insurance claim or managing irrigation, a precision ag comparison tool can make the job easier.

The industry experts we spoke to stated a different things they needed to compare – from orthomosaics and plant features to index maps and damage hotspots – the need was the same: a tool that could compare different layers of agriculture information, side by side.

Pix4Dfield’s comparison tool has two different viewing options: double screen or split screen. If you are comparing an index map (for example a NDVI) and an orthomosaic, the double screen allows you to see both visuals displayed simultaneously. In this example, we can see where the damage hotspots on an index map correspond to an orthomosaic.

Especially if we zoom in further, the hot spots become even more apparent.

If you need to see more detail within the same visual, for instance if you are planning your irrigation management decisions and need to know how the height of your fields (represented in an Digital Surface Model) corresponds to an orthomosaic then split screen might be a better option.
