Using multispectral images and vegetation indices to map dune habitats using UAV (drone) technology

Jul 04 2019 Posted: 14:25 IST
MSc student Jack Workman is working with Dr Eugene Farrell to test the application of multispectral (MicaSense RedEdge) and RGB images to map dune vegetation and habitats (e.g., the rare Natterjack toad) in The Maharees using UAV technology. Their research is illustrating the great potential of high-resolution UAV data and photogrammetric techniques in coastal science and related disciplines. UAV mapping represents a faster, more reliable, and cost-effective approach in landscape assessment for scientists and managers.
