With our imagery, landowners can scout and analyze the health and vitality and/or problem areas of their entire crop within minutes. With this data the farmer can easily identify problem areas and focus their efforts on maximizing yields in a timely and precise manner while limiting the amount of chemical use resulting in a cleaner environment and increased profits.

Why people choose Big Sky

The biggest advantage that we have over others is that we fly an actual plane instead of using a drone or UAV. This gives us multiple advantages. First and foremost, weight is not a limiting factor for us. We use industrial grade, high definition digital cameras that are a bit too heavy for drones to carry. Even if they could, they can only stay in the air for 15-20 minutes and are restricted to 400 feet. We fly much higher (Usually at 3000 feet) and we can photograph approximately 500 acres per minute with the ability to stay airborne for hours.

Let us worry about taking the picture and you can focus on what you do best....Farming.
