About the Project

Computer Computer vision technology has been found to be an important application in remotely sensed data understanding. This research exploits high‐resolution images captured by UAV payload cameras to identify tree species. It focuses on recovery of tree canopy profiles and further tree leaf shape in association with height information in tree species identification. Potential applications of the research cover forest‐monitoring for eco‐system analysis, forest growth modelling and fire risk assessment. The results of the research can also be used for city planning and forest management. Detecting drug plants from remotely sensed data may also fall in the application area.
