Bluesky Tree Map Helps Identify Diseases in UK Trees

Bluesky, creator of the National Tree Map, is working with researchers at the University of Leicester, UK, to investigate the use of airborne mapping systems to identify diseases in trees. The health of UK forestry has been in the news for many years with Sudden Oak Death, Dutch Elm and more recently Ash Die Back and Red Band Needle Drop all generating headlines. Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and supported by Forest Research, the study will investigate the use of aerial photography, thermal imaging and airborne laser mapping systems to improve the identification of diseases, determine the...

Belgorod and Bryansk Regional Maps on Bank of Spatial Data Updated

On the geoportal Bank of Spatial Data, the maps of the Belgorod and Bryansk regions, created using OpenStreetMap data, were updated. Source data obtained from the GIS-Lab website are complemented by objects from maps of scale 1: 1,000,000. There are added the objects of hydrography, vegetation, road network. For work with the received map it is possible to use the GIS Panorama Mini application or other software products of KB Panorama. Publishing of updates in bank of spatial data is made by using the program of Databank of digital maps and remote sensing data. Publishing contents of bank of spatial... (read more)

Monitoring, Mapping, and Modelling Saltmarsh

The UAV Way
Coastal and estuarine saltmarsh has long been recognized as having key physical, ecological, and recreational value, acting as sediment and nutrient traps and as natural coastal protection structures functioning as protective buffers between the land and sea. Additionally, they are important areas for shelter, feeding and breeding of diverse forms of wildlife (Doody, 2007). Recent work suggests that saltmarshes are particularly good for demonstrating how the coast can change in response to environmental influences, including relative sea level rise. The pace of current Scottish relative sea level rise (Rennie and Hansom, 2011) may lead to inundation of coastal saltmarsh, with... (read more)

Bluesky LiDAR data reveals First World War trenches

High resolution laser scanned height models may have revealed previously unrecorded First World War practice trenches. The LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data, captured by aerial mapping company Bluesky, was commissioned by the Coal Authority as part of their research and development programme, which is looking at alternative ways to inspect mine entries in remote and rural areas. However on closer inspection by specialists at English Heritage, patterns in the terrain revealed trenches that are thought to have been used by soldiers preparing for the battlefields of World War One. Phil Broughton, Project Manager (Research and Development and Mine Entry... (read more)
