A. Yes, you can use our service from almost any computer with an internet connection.

A. The skills required to use the service are similar to downloading pictures from a camera, sending email, and using a web page.

A. Yes. Aside from a standalone unit, the entire system can be custom-mounted to a riding or walk mower.

A. Accuracy varies depending on the quality of antenna reception and the type of signal correction used, but most of the time positions are accurate to within one meter.

A. Our sensors have their own light source and can be used day or night. We recommend establishing a set time for data collection. This is best if you wish to compare maps from one day to the next.

A. Yes, in addition to daily maps and summaries, we can provide you with GIS format files.

A. The area sampled is dependent on the field of view of the sensor and height at which the sensor is mounted.

A. Turf stress can be caused by various conditions (moisture, nutrient, pest, etc.). Our system identifies stress, not the specific causes.

A. Yes. The RapidSCAN system is particularly well-suited for greenhouse applications or “pot studies” because of its portability.  Please refer to the manual regarding the use of the sensor in a greenhouse environment (black cloth background, field of view, and minimum sensor height).

A. Yes. Most sensors can be used in “point and shoot” mode or “plot mode”.  The set up requirements are slightly different and a simulated map can be created.
