Ecosystem Monitoring Using Drones: A UTAS Survey

UPDATE Wednesday, 13 November – SURVEY CLOSED

The survey has now closed. If you would like more information on the project please contact Juliane Bendig at UTAS (details below). 

You’re invited to participate in a University of Tasmania (UTAS) led study that’s exploring the use of drones (UAS/UAV) in Australian ecosystem monitoring activities.

The goal of the study is to better understand the organisations, groups and individuals acquiring UAS data or analysing data from external sources. The first step is to assess the processes that are already in place across Australia, before an attempt is made to make data collection methods and processing more robust and suitable for long-term monitoring.

The medium-term aim is to establish a network for systematic monitoring of ecosystems, that would provide local-scale calibration and validation data for regional scale observations of ecosystem processes.

This short survey will ask questions about the acquisition, analysis and storage of UAS data in your work. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete and you may decline to participate at any stage without consequence. The results will be analysed by UTAS and shared with TERN.

The survey closes at 17:00 AEDT Friday, 8 November 2019.
