UAV workshop

On 17-18 April, an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) workshop was held in collaboration between SITES and the Ljungberg Laboratory at SLU in Umeå. The workshop was open to anyone who was interested in drones but focused primarily on those who had already started using drones in their daily operations.

During Tuesday, nearly 25 people participated and there was a mix between researchers and technicians / station staff. Tuesday was aimed at theory and began with representatives from the Department of Forestry Resource Management presenting their projects where they used UAV. This was followed by a review of what to think about when collecting data with drones. The afternoon was mainly about reference data and calibration to increase the accuracy of data collection.

Wednesday was spent in the Ljungberg Laboratory where we did post processing exercises in the Agisoft Photoscan program.
