UAV application for remote sensing course started

The course on UAV application for Remote Sensing started successfully. The weather was good enough to do some first flights. In the next weeks and months more flights will be undertaken and data collected for different fields sites in order to gain more information concerning their ecology, geomorphology, archeology or forestry.  Several software solutions and ...

MSc: predicting forest understory canopy cover

MSc: predicting forest understory canopy cover

Wall-to-wall predictions of understory canopy cover usign high density point cloud, habitat types and a logistic model

The M.Sc thesis by Bastian Schumann focused on a LiDAR-based approach to combine structural metrics and forest habitat information for causal and predictive models of under-story canopy cover. The data base used consisted of a bi-temporal LiDAR dataset as well as two field datasets and two habitat maps. The entire data were initially edited, revealing ...
