So you can collect more data? Is it relevant? Is it meaningful? Is it useful or just a marketing tool to show you are more innovative than your competition? Remote sensing is not a new technology, but the sensor technology is developing more rapidly than research can determine what the sensor readings represent.
This webinar will build on the previous UAV webinar in February, going beyond FAA regulations, and an agronomist's early use of UAVs. The CCA will learn about the comparative benefits of low-elevation airplane imagery, satellite imagery, and UAV imagery, the types of sensors and the types of data they can collect, why sensor platforms may be use-specific, and what is required to interpret the maps generated. It will provide perspectives on why researchers are often reluctant to endorse certain technologies that are being marketed and sometimes widely used in the industry.
