DroneDeploy Now Supports Processing Multispectral Imagery From SLANTRANGE

SLANTRANGE and DroneDeploy

In our continuing partnership with DroneDeploy, the leading drone software platform, we’re happy to announce that our calibrated multispectral imagery can now be processed with DroneDeploy. SLANTRANGE sensors capture high-resolution, calibrated, multispectral imagery using patented sunlight calibration algorithms so that growers and agronomists can accurately compare crop data over time.

“SLANTRANGE is committed to promoting an open ecosystem that allows customers to collect and process their data using a combination of tools that work best for their business. This partnership gives DroneDeploy customers access to the accuracy and specificity of SLANTRANGE’s true multispectral imagery.”

To create a DroneDeploy map with a SLANTRANGE sensor, users should install the free SLANTRANGE application within DroneDeploy, fly using the DroneDeploy mobile app, and upload imagery to DroneDeploy for processing. Once the map is complete, users will be able to view, analyze, and share plant health data, providing an end-to-end solution all within the DroneDeploy software suite.

Bloomberg Lists SLANTRANGE as 1 of 50 Most Promising Startups You’ve Never Heard Of

Bloomberg Logo

SLANTRANGE was honored to be included in Bloomberg’s recent list of the “50 Most Promising Startups You’ve Never Heard Of“. The authors started with 50,000 companies founded in the past six years and used criteria such as the amount of funding rounds, the time between funding rounds, the background of the founders, whether the founders had worked together in the past, and many other business factors to narrow the list down to only 50 companies. Notably, SLANTRANGE was the only company from San Diego on the list.

There are a few early clues that a startup will be successful, according to market researcher Quid: Have the company’s founders worked together before? Is the business in a hot sector, one where many other new startups are also focusing? Has it raised funding at a quick pace? Based on those criteria and others, Quid looked at more than 50,000 companies and chose 50 it deemed the most promising.
