Jamie Portolese

Senior Research Data Scientist

I completed the Pix4Dfields Essentials course and learned a lot about the capabilities of Pix4D's agricultural software offering. I'm impressed by the tools, and the course was well worth my time. Great case studies and excellent instruction on precision agricultural applications of drone imagery. I'm planning a few posts that show results from some datasets that I captured with my DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral as well as some of the case studies that I looked at in the course. Very impressed with the Magic Tool and looking forward to working through some additional datasets that are available online.
