US: A new aerial surveying company has launched in Minnesota. Called Midwest Aerial Technologies, the company specialises in aerial surveys for agriculture, wind, mining, and commercial industry, among others. CEO Matthew Rohlik points out that even the Minnesota location was chosen to set base because the region is witnessing several research, surveying, construction and agricultural businesses focus on technology. Rohlik also tells that the company has been surveying farmers’ fields in the region. The data gathered is archived into the grower’s farm management software for additional layers of information usable in the off season to adjust management zones. The company is also offering to survey 100 acres of land free for every 1,000 acres a farmer signs up for.
