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!

Mile-High Flight & Seminar in Boulder

Usually manned and unmanned aircraft don’t fly in close proximity for very good reason, but we were granted an exemption on Tuesday, April 9th 2019. As part of a joint Headwall and NEON (National Ecological Observatory Network, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and operated by Battelle) project, a Headwall drone and a DeHavilland DHC-6 Twin Otter, one of the NEON Airborne Observation Platforms (AOPs), where flown simultaneously in controlled airspace within a short drive of the University of Colorado – Boulder.

100 Earth-Shattering Remote Sensing Applications

Remote sensing as a technique is finding more and more acceptance beyond early military and agricultural applications. Take a look at this intriguing list published in GISGeography. We can help you with many of these applications. Related to list item number 2, we recently introduced our new LiDAR Tools software package to support a lightweight LiDAR add-on that can be incorporated onto our integrated UAV payload.

Hyperspectral & LiDAR: The Gold Standard

As remote sensing evolves, users across all applications are discovering the value of adding LiDAR instruments to a hyperspectral payload. First, instruments of all types are getting smaller and lighter. Second, UAVs are more capable than ever in terms of carrying capacity and airborne stability. Finally, users across agriculture, minerals and mining, and environmental research can now collect a full suite of useful data at one time. With powerful GPS/IMU devices to tie the data streams together, a completely integrated hyperspectral-LiDAR airborne package is now the 'gold standard' for many remote sensing missions.
