Applications of the TerraLuma Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for change mapping


Harwin, S, Applications of the TerraLuma Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for change mapping, School of Geography & Environmental Studies Conference Abstracts 2010, 28 June 2010, Sandy Bay (2010) [Conference Extract]


The TerraLuma Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) combines an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with a number of sensors including visible, near infrared and thermal cameras, LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), and eventually multispectral and/or hyperspectral sensors. The data gathered using this UAS is very high resolution spatially and the cost and ease of deployment make the system ideal for high temporal resolution data capture tailored to specific applications. My PhD Thesis (which began in April) will investigate the potential of the UAS for change detection and visualisation. This talk will highlight the wide range of applications that the system could be used for and focus in on the case studies that we have chosen, including coastal change monitoring and crop monitoring. These case studies, along with the work of the other team members, will provide the proof of concept for the future use of the TerraLuma UAS commercially.
