Object Classification using Spectral Signatures

When I began working for the SGRC, I was given the task of analyzing multi-spectral drone imagery from cutblocks. The objective was to provide Government and industry partners with an accurate means of assessing biomass quantities left behind from logging operations.

These are my wings: Leveraging UAV remote sensing for environmental research

Growing up watching the Jetson’s (re-runs of course, because my grandparents were not even done high school by the time the series was finished its original run) I thought we would be whizzing around the skies in our own personal flying cars by the time I was old enough to drive.
