DataMapper Launches New Drone Data App – Waterpooling App

In the aftermath of an extreme rain event, insurance adjusters and growers have had to spend a significant amount of time in the field to approximate the extent of damage. We aimed to simplify this process, so we partnered with ADM Crop Risk Services.

Introducing the Waterpooling App, a groundbreaking tool that automatically and accurately identifies standing water in a field from processed drone imagery.


Identify standing water in pre-emergent agriculture fields

Using only high-resolution imagery from your NIR modified sensor, areas of standing water in agriculture fields can be accurately identified and measured. This algorithm was developed to work in pre-emergent agricultural fields and quantify areas that cannot be planted due to standing water. Additional uses could include determining flood damage immediately after an extreme rain event or monitoring water levels of permanent water features.

Other Details:

  • Supported Sensors: BGNIR
  • Supported Resolution: 100.00 cm/px or less
  • Estimated Processing: Less than 2 hours
Inputs Outputs
  1. Orthorectified Image (GeoTIFF)
  1. Georeferenced Water Image (Compressed Folder containing GeoTIFF)
  2. KML Tile Set (Compressed Folder)
  3. Text file with total area in acres covered by water
  4. ESRI Format Geospatial Shapefile
