SKYLAB Products.

Seedling Counter

 Aerial seedling survival and weed monitoring    


 We analyse your drone images and automatically detect and count all seedlings, to provide you with seedling density maps, hotspots of planting failure and low density as well as areas of high weed pressure.

Digital Forester

Aerial plantation inventory and stock modelling 


 With our Digital Forester algorithms, we analyse your drone or plane images to provide you with a precise inventory of your plantation. We deliver digital terrain and tree height models, tree densities, height statistics and stock modelling. So you can make better decisions, reduce costs and maximise productivity.

How it works.


 Fly your own drone, use a service provider or ask SKYLAB for flight services to collect your drone data. SKYLAB drones can capture up to 1000ha or 150km per day in high resolution imagery with less than 2cm ground resolution. In addition we capture multispectral images to calculate plant vitality and stress indices or to determine species distribution.

Of course we can also work with your plane or satellite data - beware that these are bound to have lower resolution impacting on the precision of the results.


 Upload your data to SKYLAB servers and tell us about your goals for the data analsyis. Full forest inventory or just an orthomosaic with tree count? Simple stress index map or a fully fledged bark beetle infection analysis? Just a 3D Pointcloud of your power line or rail track or with full vegetation and risk mapping? Select your desired parameters for high quality processing and we will quality check and process your data with short response times and recommendations for future quality improvements on the raw data.


Our algorithms carry out the analysis of your raw data to provide you with the desired, high quality output. Resulting maps and data are made available via the SKYLABmaps web-based platform (where you can edit, share and download the information) as well as vectorized datafiles for easy integration into your GIS tools. You can also view the results on your mobile device anywhere in the field.

We are happy to help you make the most of the results by assisting you with the integration into your management system as well as with the further interpretation of the results to achieve your desired objective.
