Digital Forestry: Key Developments in Aerial Remote Sensing

Songlin Fei, professor of forestry and natural resources; Joe Hupy, associate professor of aviation technology; and Jinha Jung, assistant professor of civil engineering, all of Purdue University, present a webinar titled Digital Forestry: Key Developments in Aerial Remote Sensing.

In this webinar, Fei, Hupy and Jung will share about key developments and applications of aerial remote sensing such as the application of aerial LiDAR for digital surface models, structure from motion with UAS based images, and feature extractions and inventory with cloud points.
