Terra Drone India has completed an aerial survey of 4,200 sq km of agricultural land for the Water Resources Department of the Maharashtra Krishna Valley Development Corporation (MKVDC) in India, Terra Drone announced on 9 May.

A total of 1,085 villages and farm boundaries were identified for survey using UAS. The company surveyed an average of 120 sq km of area per day, acquiring images with 2cm/pixel resolution. The aerial data acquisition was completed within two months.

The Water Resources Department also needed information about the types of crops being sown and the irrigation methods adopted by the farmers. To fulfil this requirement, Terra Drone India deployed field survey teams to collect supplemental information to support the data acquired by the UAS.

Using UAS allowed MKVDC to update its archaic maps in half the time of traditional survey methods. Government officials were also able to get a clear picture of the crops sown in 4,200 sq km of land and the type of irrigation being used.
