This week a team from ETH Zurich (Chris Kettle, Chue Poh) and the company Research Drones are visiting our GEM research site at Wytham Woods, near Oxford. They are demonstrating new lightweight drone (or UAV) technology that enables collection of airborne imagery and movies. The whole set-up costs less than 3000 pounds, make it very affordable for remote GEM sites. The challenge is to see how usable the imagery is afterwards, and this is what I am keen to find out both in the field, and afterwards when we process the data.
The technology is certainly impressive, though there is a clear sense of a work in progress, almost a hobbyist activity, to get the most out of it.
