FAQ

Why GolfGage matters

Golf course management is changing rapidly with the emergence of cost-effective drones, multi-spectral cameras, IoT and mobile devices. GolfGage will help you take advantage of these technologies to monitor the condition of your course, clubhouse and machinery.

What does the Mobile Maintenance App do?

Our Golf Maintenance App allows to monitor course relevant issues, assign maintenance tasks to team members and track their work progress. Issues can be identified with the App while walking the course or through algorithms that identify issues from your drone maps or IoT sensors.

Is GolfGage similar to DroneDeploy or Pix4D?

GolfGage is much more. Although it can process drone maps, NDVI and contour maps, it’s main focus is on using drone data in your maintenance work.  Our mobile FieldApp combines a maintenance workflow with drone maps and CAD drawings to dispatch teams to specific locations to conduct a more thorough ground inspection. Maintenance teams use GolfGage to report back on their work and update the course superintendent as they progress.

What map formats is GolfGage compatible with?

You can import maps to GolfGage or import them directly from selected web applications. This way you can use the software tools you are most familiar with and then upload the outputs to GolfGage. We fully integrate with DroneDeploy allowing you to upload maps straight from their website to GolfGage. GolfGage also accepts GeoTIFF, MBTiles or non-georeferenced PDF and image files (PNG, JPEG, etc.) which can then be georeferenced directly in GolfGage.

Why do we still need to visually inspect a Golf Course?

Golf Clubs or Hotel facilities face hundreds of small issues around their course or property. Tracking these can not be achieved entirely from the air. That is why GolfGage is build around the concept of ground truthing where information from aerial maps is supplemented with detailed case records as seen from the ground. GolfGage has designed a Geospatial FieldApp that allows you to track all issues and records related to maintenance in a simply beautiful app.

Do we need to know how to operate a drone?

That’s up to you. You can hire external drone operators to capture your course images or fly your own drones. GolfGage allows you to acquire your course maps in any way you like. Drone operators can upload their own maps or upload acquired images to GolfGage for processing. GolfGage is compatible with all major drone brands and integrates with any existing map software or format in case you already have maps of your course you wish to use.

GolfGage Features :

MapGage geospatial mobile app replacing turf manager paper forms to track turf related problems on top of drone maps. Issues can also be projected on NDVI maps.

TRACK YOUR GOLF COURSE ISSUES AND TASKS WHILE WALKING THE COURSE:

Our drag & drop Form Builder allows you to build, distribute and manage customized, lightweight geospatial apps across standard mobile devices. All without the need for specialized hardware, software or training. Replace all your paper forms while keeping your golf course management methodology and expand it with a powerful location data collection tool. Add photos & videos to your records. Link assets using barcodes to records. Collected data can then be visualized in interactive tables and maps.

MANAGE YOUR GOLF MAINTENANCE TEAMS, ASSIGN TASKS & GET INSTANT FEEDBACK ON WORK DONE.

GolfGage mobile forms include powerful status and scheduling options, making them adaptable to any methodology you might apply in managing your golf course. Collect issue records in the field, schedule maintenance work orders, dispatch golf course maintenance teams to a specific issue or location and receive instant feedback through mobile devices. This ensures that you can close the loop on cases and issues and manage teams and assets with confidence.

USE DETAILED COURSE MAPS TO HIGHLIGHT LOCATION OF TURF CONDITION & ISSUES

Overlay your mobile golf course data on satellite maps, drone acquired maps, turf health maps (NDVI) or even building & surveyor plans (CAD drawings) to better understand the context in which your data was collected. For example, overlay irrigation and drainage plans over your drone maps to make informed decisions while inspecting the course. GolfGage includes a full fledged map system that can process drone acquired data as orthomosaic, elevation and NDVI maps. GolfGage also includes a geo-referencing module to anchor CAD drawings such as floorplans on top of drone and satellite maps. 

BRINGING GROUND & DRONE DATA TOGETHER... THE GOLFGAGE GEOSPATIAL PORTAL:

Visualize your golf course records and map data in a shareable, collaborative geospatial portal. Spot patterns, analyze differences and use these insights to make the right decisions. Dispatch your course maintenance teams to work on issues and report back. Manage your teams by adding and removing team members. Create Reports using the collected golf course records. Edit your existing forms on the fly and create new forms as needed.

TRACK YOUR EQUIPMENT & IMPORT SENSOR DATA :

Track the condition of your machinery with GolfGage. Maintenance staff can highlight machinery issues to the course mechanics. The mechanics can mark machinery as ‘being repaired’ and inform the maintenance staff when the equipment is expected to be available again. This is important to plan future course maintenance tasks. Track spare parts needed and forward detailed reports to external contractors or equipment manufacturers for repairs. 

IMPORT YOUR CLUB HOUSE FLOOR PLANS & USE OUR MOBILE APP TO TRACK MAINTENANCE ISSUES

GolfGage can be used to monitor any type of asset including buildings and indoor facilities. Just upload your club house floor plans and start tracking club house related maintenance issues too. Never lose track of all the small improvements & repairs needed to keep your facilities in perfect condition.

MapGage can use the golf clubs floor plans to create a geospatial mobile app to collect maintenance records of all issues around the golf club house.
MapGage offers cost effective solutions to capture NDVI maps of Golf Clubs and plantations using an adapter to attach any NDVI NIR camera to a DJI or 3DR drone multicopter.

WORKS WITH ANY DRONE & CAMERA SETUP INCL. DJI, PARROT and 3DR:

Does your organization fly drones or hire drone pilots to create maps? GolfGage works with any drone acquired images as long as you can ensure they overlap enough to process a map. With GolfGage you just need to upload your drone acquired images and we will process them for you. We also offer golf specific drone sets that combine easy to use off the shelf drones with NIR cameras that will allow you to monitor the health of your turf. Just get in touch with us to know more.

ARE YOU USING GROUND BASED SENSORS? GOLFGAGE CAN INTEGRATE THEM:

Does your golf course use weather stations, irrigation control systems or soil moisture sensors? GolfGage comes with an API and upon request we can import any sensor data and add it as a separate layer on top of your drone maps and mobile acquired course data. GolfGage is also fully compatible with Bluetooth Low Energy beacons such as Eddystone beacons that are increasingly used for weather stations or soil moisture sensors. View all your golf course sensor data right in our GolfGage geospatial portal.
