Frequently asked questions
What is Aeroview?
The Aeroview platform is your personal planning, monitoring and control center for your farms with an intuitive display to turn insights into actions. Log in on a PC/laptop and look at specific details by selecting layers when needed: tasks, scouting, satellite imagery with indexes like NDVI, per-tree drone analytics and reports.
How do I get started?
To get the most out of our platform, it is important for our team to understand the needs of your business. That’s why we recommend that you request a demo with our team of agricultural experts.
What crops do you support?
For our Yield Insights service we currently only support citrus. Our Tree Insights service supports citrus, berries, nuts, pome, stone, grapes, subtropical fruit and olives and pomegranates.
Where do you operate?
We operate in 18 countries across Africa, the Americas, Europe and Australasia and are always looking to expand in the global agriculture industry.
How do you capture images?
We use a combination of drone and satellite imagery to provide our customers with insights into their farms. Our drones fly with multispectral cameras that capture high-resolution imagery at a level unseen to the naked eye.
Do I need my own drone to become a customer?
No, you do not need to use or fly your own drone. Once you have signed up with us, we will arrange for a drone pilot to come to your farm at a time that suits you.
If you own a drone, you can fly your own drone as long as it is compatible with our list of recommended drones and hardware. Get in touch to find out more.
When is the best time to fly?
The timing of drone flights will differ depending on the crop type. We generally recommend 3–6 critically timed flights throughout the season and during a 6-hour time period during the day.
Can Aerobotics fly over nets?
We cannot fly over nets for our Yield Insights product. For Tree Insights, we work with farms covered by shade netting if they meet the requirements for high-quality imagery. Get in touch to find out more.
What is the imagery resolution?
Resolution refers to the size an object or detail can be represented in an image and higher resolution means that the pixels are smaller, providing more detail. This gives you an in-depth view of your farm.
When will my insights be ready?
For serviced flights, you will be able to view your Tree Insights within 4 to 7 days after your data has been flown and for self-serviced flights, 3 to 7 days from when the upload is completed.
The time it takes to receive your insights depends on various factors such as the amount of hectares/acres flown, crop type, and, in the case of a serviced flight, internet speeds during data upload post-flight.
You can check the progress of your data on the Aeroview platform.
