Pix4D and Parrot recently joined forces to combine the technology of drones with multispectral cameras--which captures images beyond the scope of the human eye. Together, they created a 3D vegetation map of California's Whitaker’s Forest in Kings Canyon National Park.

Explains Unmanned Aerial, "According to Pix4D, large air purifiers – like the giant sequoia trees in California – are key for the environment and are studied to measure how much carbon dioxide they capture. By using drones and multispectral imagery, the companies gave researchers access to information that was previously undisclosed."
