Application of Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) in monitoring of terrestrial habitats

Publikation: KonferencebidragKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskningpeer review


I the last years there have been high focus on UAVs (drones) for many civil purposes and UAVs are also increasingly used for ecological data gathering. This presentation will first make an appetizer to show the new possibilities of using UAVs. The traditional concept of separating “data” that are “real” from “models” that are “simulations” has to be refined in the area of field investigations, in order to utilize UAVs to make a revolution in data and understanding about the terrestrial habitats. However, this is not straightforward, and the presentation will line up the obstacles for using UAVs in terrestrial habitat monitoring as the four challenges: (1) Technical issues of data gathering; (2) Legal issues of air operations; (3) Mathematical/Technical issues of data processing; (4) The issue of reforming the scientific traditions in field investigations.
