29.05.2017 MosaicMill starts development of forest inventry methods with HS camera.

MosaicMill has started co-operation with Metsä Group, one of the biggest forest industriel groups, to develop forest inventories with UAV and hyperspectral camera. Aim is to establish methods that enable inventory of forest properties without field measurements. Press release by Metsä Group

19.05.2017 District heating networks of lappeenranta and Imatra surveyed.

MosaicMill has carried out first district heating surveys with new technology in order to detect energy linkages. Survey was carried out with Piper manned aircraft covering over 500 km of pipelines.

26.04.2017 EnsoMOSAIC Agri updated

MosaicMill has released new version of EnsoMOSAIC Agri QGIS plugin. New version is applying 2 - 5 reflectance targets to correct non-linearity of the camera.

04.11.2016 EnsoMOSAIC Agri released

MosaicMill has further developed NDVI tools and new version is now EnsoMOSAIC Agri. This QGIS plugin calculates reflectance mosaics, true NDVIs and prescription maps which can be used in most tractor systems to optimize fertilazation in precision agriculture. Detailed workflow of the tools is shown in the following youtube videos:
