Idaho State University’s Department of Geosciences Boise Center Aerospace Laboratory (BCAL) and the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) recently published a paper on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). The paper, “Radiometric and Geometric Analysis of Hyperspectral Imagery Acquired from an Unmanned Aerial … (Read More) BCAL and INL recently published a paper on unmanned aircraft systems
Immersive visualization has emerged as an ideal solution for three-dimensional exploration of remote sensing data collected using varied sensing devices. The ability to manipulate data interactively in true 3D with interfaces designed speciﬁcally for the immersive environment can signiﬁcantly speed up … (Read More) Immersive visualization: 3D data fusion
Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-based hyperspectral remote sensing capabilities developed by the Idaho National Lab and Idaho State University, Boise Center Aerospace Lab, were tested via demonstration flights that explored the influence of altitude on geometric error, image mosaicking, and dryland vegetation classification. The test … (Read More) UAV-based hyperspectral sensing of dryland vegetation
BCAL and Idaho National Lab (INL site) are collaborating on developing hyperspectral sensing capabilities on small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Until now, the focus has been to improve the calibration and registration of the UAV-based sensor data and test the … (Read More) UAV-based hyperspectral remote sensing
BCAL has been in forefront of research on mapping leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula L.) and other invasive species in Idaho using various remote sensing techniques. BCAL graduate students Jessica Mitchell, Jacob Mundt, and Nagendra Singh have written Master of Science … (Read More) Mapping leafy spurge with field spectroscopy
