Spring term 2016 started with a new course called ”Remote Sensing and Forest Inventory”. It’s the first time a 15hp course is given on Remote Sensing and Inventory combined. Eleven forestry undergraduates and two PhD students have taken the course which has run from January 18 – March 21.
New elements in the course have been
- ”Ljungbergs Week” with demonstrations and hands-on experience with TLS, UAVs, and 3D point cloud generation
- A new radar exercise using Sentinel-1 data
- A lecture on ground-based inventory methods using remote sensing instruments (TLS, MLS, and photogrammetry)
- Introduction to multi-source forest inventory
- Integration of lecture and exercises using our Environmental Monitoring data (From NFI and NILS)
The students finish the course Monday 21 March with a presentation of their one week independent project.
