UAVs in forestry: Opportunities and challenges
November 24, 2015 By Wings Magazine
Drone technology is quickly finding its way into a variety of commercial applications and the forestry sector is ready to take advantage of this new remote sensing platform.
Imagery from aircraft and satellite has been used for decades to generate forest inventory and build annual and long-term forest management plans. However, efficient tools and methods for more frequent revisits, but on a smaller scale, could be very useful for improving decision making of more dynamic and evolving events; which is often the case in active harvesting areas.
FPInnovations’ work aims at testing the feasibility and strength of this new technology in various forestry applications. They also plan to focus on image analysis automation to facilitate and lower the cost of the applications.
This webinar will cover early results, implementation challenges and strategies for introducing promising applications.
And all of this for only $25!
