  3. 3. Assessing annual forest phenology: a comparison of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and phenocamera datasets

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Shangharsha Thapa; [2020]
    Keywords : Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; Near-surface Remote Sensing; UAV; Phenocamera; Forest Phenology; Phenophase; Seasonality; NDVI; GCC; Geomatics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Near-surface remote sensing platforms such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and phenocameras appear to be potential platforms for keeping track of seasonal dynamics at a local scale. This research focusses on extracting time series of different vegetation indices (VIs) from both platforms, computing seasonality events from them and comparing the results against spectral sensor data.
