Does anyone have experience using a drone to measure the depth of a pond? I understand using DroneDeploy I can get terrain models and estimate the depth of an open pit. But if the pit was full of water, would the drone "see" the bottom? Do I need a FLIR camera?

Interesting thought. Even with a terrain model, how would it know what the current depth of the water would be? Water level will fluctuate as per Mother Nature.
