September 22: A Look into Data Processing 12pm – 1pm

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have become a staple technology in most fields of research. Natural resource management being one of the largest disciplines to adopt this technology and develop it for their particular needs. The ability to collect high accuracy data from an aerial perspective using a multitude of sensors gives managers the ability to understand the environment and its changes. Collecting the data is a large part, however, the ability to process and create usable products is the next step and the most revealing to researchers. This presentation will focus on UAVs and creating 3D imagery.
