About Us

Who We Are

At VineView we are transforming the way growers monitor crop health. Using highly specialized aerial-based spectral sensors, and a cloud-based image processing service we deliver ultra-high resolution aerial imagery and data insights to help agricultural operators monitor the health of their crop in real-time.

Named one of Canada’s most innovative tech companies by the Canadian Innovation Exchange, our technology enables more responsive crop management, reduced costs, decreased inputs, and minimizes the environmental impact of your agriculture operations while improving crop quality and yields.

SkySquirrel Technologies and VineView, Scientific Aerial Imaging, Inc., leading provider of remote sensing services to grape growers in California since 2002, merged in January 2018 to become VineView.
