UKCEH is running an interactive online course on using drones to map habitats. This interactive course will give you the skills you need to take images collected from a UAV platform (drone), process the images into a scene suitable for image processing, and generate classified images. We will talk you through the steps necessary to produce high-quality and accurate maps that are suitable for mapping vegetation and landforms.
