Unmanned Aircraft Systems for Remote Sensing Applications

UAS to map and monitor our environment

Aim

The potential and challenges of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for monitoring our environment is covered using theoretical as well as practical approaches.

 

Content

In recent years, the use of small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV, UASs or also called Drones) inceased to map and monitor our environment at unprecedented detail. The development of new multispectral instruments on UAVs have given the remote sensing community exciting opportunities to acquire new data. With these new opportunities also new challenges such as sensor calibration, georeferencing as well as processing workflows, calibration/validation,  and derivation of relevant land cover information. The course will cover theory and practice to apply UAVs in environmental research and its use for remote sensing analysis.

 

Coding

Coding examples and individual work will be covered

Software

Various software programs will be used, but mainly OpenSource software such as R.

Techniques

Different techniques will be introduced and practically applied.
