Hail Damage Classification Using Drones

Graphic identifying hail damage on the smart farm

Olds College and Alberta Financial Services Corporation are working together to determine if high definition imaging can be used for the classification of hail damaged areas in barley. Currently, the deployment of drones for collecting imagery to help assess hail damage remains in the development and validation stage. This project builds upon available knowledge, expertise, and data set required for the continued development of measuring crop losses as a result of hail storms using drones.
