FORESTRY & NATURAL RESOURCES
Managers of forests, rivers, watersheds, wildlife habitats, and other public lands have come to rely on aerial remote sensing to efficiently image and analyze assets on lands within their stewardship. From tracking bark beetle infestation and damage over time to assessing overall forest health and change at strategic times of the year, digital orthoimagery is an important tool to evaluate these critical changes.
Where canopy volumes need to be studied, LiDAR provides a reliable means of penetrating vegetation to establish an accurate baseline ground surface, as well as modeling the top of the canopy. We can also model highly detailed branch and tree structure within the canopy using this technology.
