Mobile Data Collection for Golf Course Superintendents & Golf Course Maintenance Teams
MapGage helps Golf Course Superintendents collect course condition data with digital forms, replacing cumbersome paper forms, manage golf course maintenance teams, and track machinery & and
Golf management is changing rapidly with the emergence of cost-effective drones, special turf-cameras
- a golf-specific drone & camera sets, easy to setup & fly, able to detect vegetation areas that need attention
- a mobile geospatial golf app that allows Golf Course Superintendents to track all course relevant issues, assign course maintenance work and track work done
- 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
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.

HIGH RESOLUTION DRONE MAPS OF YOUR GOLF COURSE:
SEE HIDDEN TURF ISSUES USING NDVI MAPS:
NDVI maps rely on the fact that, leaves reflect a lot of light in the near infrared, in stark contrast with non-plant objects. When plants become dehydrated or stressed, leaves reflect less NIR light, but the same amount of visible light. Using specific sensors MapGage can create a stress map to identify where your turf is dehydrated or infected before it becomes visible. Use this to dispatch teams to conduct a more thorough ground inspection.
IDENTIFY & TRACK ISSUES AROUND THE COURSE FROM THE GROUND:
A Golf Club or Hotel facility faces hundreds of small issues around
