Changing the Landscape of Impervious-Surface Mapping

  By Jill Kelley Urban growth adversely affects the natural environment in many ways and requires a variety of strategies and tools to mitigate its impact. Impervious-surface mapping is one such tool. By measuring the surface area of compacted earth and man-made construction (e.g., pavement, concrete, rooftops, buildings and other impervious surfaces), municipalities and other

Monitoring a Marine Reserve

A Flexrotor UAS Provides Proof of Poaching By Matt Ball Cocos Island National Park is a Costa Rican biodiversity treasure that lies 350 miles off the coast and along the same subterranean mountain ridge as Galapagos Island in the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean. This ridge provides an ecosystem supporting an abundant and broad range of

A New Age for Oil and Gas Exploration: Remote-Sensing Data and Analytics Are Changing the Industry

Remote sensing and associated technologies for oil and gas (O&G) applications aren’t new—they’ve been around for several decades. However, “above surface” information hasn’t been widely used in the last 30-40 years of O&G exploration and operations; sub-surface analyses have been more pervasive for several reasons.

German Engineering: Imagery Tools Automate Vegetation Mapping in the Rhineland

With deadlines looming and significant subsidies on offer, Germany’s RLP AgroScience saw the opportunity to use advanced spatial technology to automate this monumental task to help its local authorities meet the EU’s requirements. Using available aerial imagery, digital surface models and image-analysis software, a small RLP AgroScience team, together with local authorities, created an operational system that completely automates the process of mapping and classifying vegetation to quickly produce precise, standardized classification datasets––the root layer of the vegetative features in the LPIS.

Moving Forward with UAS Mapping

For geospatial professionals, the most exciting aspect of the current explosion in unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) is using them for mapping, a task for which they complement manned aircraft and Earth imaging satellites. The trade-offs among these three platforms include cost, endurance, coverage, resolution, processing time and refresh rates.
