Landcover Classification


Invasive Species

GUS can help design a program for invasive species and weed monitoring in the following ways:

  • Ground-based hyperspectral studies to examine unique absorption/reflectance characteristics (spectral signature) of target species and tailor the sensor to the target.
  • Temporal targeting - certain species have different growth characteristics e.g. they bloom at different times, have different responses to stresses such as water. Multiple acquisitions can help understand these variations.
  • Object based analysis - high resolution aerial data, from which features like crown shape, texture, clustering etc. can be used in conjunction with the spectral signature information to indicate specific species.

Bushfire Rehabilitation

  • Immediate post-fire mapping of extents of damage
  • Characterisation of vegetation health
  • Characterisation of areas susceptible to increased run-off and erosion
  • Temporal quantitative monitoring of vegetation recovery

Plantation Forestry Monitoring

Block scale, high-resolution multispectral mapping of forestry assets and artificial intelligence based anaylsis to provide data and insights including:

  • Canopy height models
  • Canopy diameter statistics and 2D surface maps
  • Tree counts
  • Tree health
