UAV Spectral Image Mapping of Shoreline Vegetation

Identification Based on Visible Spectral Bands
Rapid identification of a clear water surface, shoreline and vegetation can serve as a means of monitoring of the water level and as an important indicator of changes. In cases when a high level of detail or on-demand data collection is required, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or ‘drones’) can provide a good service. It is important to think about the costs of the UAV and the connected sensors as well. Multispectral and thermal cameras are still very expensive in comparison to visible cameras. This article shows how a commercially available middle-class drone (DJI Phantom 3 with built-in camera), which collects... (read more)
