Title: Low-altitude / high-resolution remote sensing for field-phenotyping: best practice and novel approaches for plant trait extraction

Abstract: In the last 10 years, development in robotics, computer vision, and sensor technology has provided new remote sensing tools to capture unprecedented ultra-high spatial and high spectral resolution with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This development has led to a revolution in geospatial data collection that can perfectly be used for field-phenotyping applications. In this webinar Helge will briefly review the state-of-the-art technology and outline novel approaches for trait extraction from spectral and 3D data. Besides, Helge will review best practice procedures for (spectral) UAV remote sensing.

Short Biography: Helge Aasen is a researcher with the Crop Science Group at ETH Zurich, where he leads the Team PhenoFly (www.phenofly.net, @PhenoFly). His research focus is the development of low-altitude / high-resolution remote sensing methods suitable to understand the interaction of plants with their environment
