Options for creating elevation maps for a farm?
What is the cheapest option to create elevation maps of the entire farm? I haven't kept up with the Agopen GPS /opengrade/RTK etc. Is that now a capability at a reasonable price, then just drive a grid with a quad?
I can find bits and pieces of accurate Lidar or similar data for free for some areas, but never have found any for my area. Buying it would add up in a hurry. Has anyone found a source that covers this area(Clearwater County in Central AB)
What about drones, how cost effective would it be to buy the drone and the hardware and programs to do it that way?
Any other options?
