Recording of CHRSE webinar: Vegetation Encroachment on Infrastructure

Watch a recording of the first webinar by the newly formed Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe. Headwall and geo-konzept in Germany teamed to show how unmanned airborne vehicles carrying a hyperspectral & LiDAR payload can detect vegetation encroachment on infrastructure. This project was done in just a few days in order to deliver a talk at DJI AirWorks this year. Afterwards with more opportunity to analyze and visualize the data taken by Christoph Schimmer of geo-konzept during a flight over a DB Fahrwegdienste railway, more material was created by the author, Dr. Carson Roberts of Headwall. Watch the video [registration required] and see the questions and answers!

Happy Anniversary Claire!

"Claire" is the nickname of a mini-satellite officially named GHGSat-D that launched in June of 2016 and shortly thereafter began delivering images using its Headwall hyperspectral SWIR sensor. Claire's mission is to help industries better understand their greenhouse gas emissions, enabling them to control and ultimately reduce them. For example, Claire can help coal mine and landfill operators find significant leaks of methane, then measure those leaks to justify a business case for gas-fired electricity generation.
