Golf management is changing rapidly with the emergence of cost-effective drones, special turf-cameras and mobile geospatial golf management applications. The ‘MapGage Golf’ solution consists of three integrated product lines:
1. a golf-specific drone & camera sets, easy to setup & fly, able to detect vegetation areas that need attention
2. a mobile geospatial golf app that allows Golf Course Superintendents to track all course relevant issues, assign course maintenance work and track work done
3. a geospatial web application that combines drone maps, mobile collected course data and presents all open tasks, updates and work submitted by maintenance in an easy to understand map-based view
This will radically change the way you golf courses are managed. Given the increasing tendency of municipalities to ration & reduce the use of water, golf course superintendents are now under increasing pressure to monitor golf course conditions to efficiently manage water resources and reduce pesticide and fertilizer usage. Our UAV solutions can overfly a course on a daily basis, processing the images within half a day and highlight areas where low moisture conditions, fungal outbreaks or pest infections are causing issues.
This data is complemented by daily updates by the golf course maintenance teams using their mobile geospatial course maintenance app. Maintenance teams can record all the issues they find as they walk the course and golf course superintendents can assign tasks directly through the geospatial web portal based on records provided by the maintenance teams or based on data from the drone maps. Drone maps and geospatial course maintenance data collected via the mobile app complement each other and provide a feedback loop no other golf drone company provides.
Storage intensive map data and geospatial records are stored, maintained and secured in the cloud. No need to change your IT infrastructure. All you need is Internet access. Data can be accessed and used for both golf course & turf management. We even offer a way to digitize your club house floor plans in order to keep track of maintenance issues and tasks necessary to keep your golf club’s reputation intact with minimal staff overhead.
