Article
Full-text available
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) represent an important niche platform for measuring vegetation health, structure, and productivity; metrics that directly inform sustainable conservation and development initiatives in rural African savannas. Products derived from UAS imagery have much finer spatial resolutions than traditional satellite or aircraft im...
Article
Full-text available
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) have emerged as a platform capable of providing valuable data on vegetation structure, health, and productivity. The platform provides maximum temporal flexibility in data collection and customizability of spatial footprints which is important for mapping and monitoring vegetation conditions especially for high spectra...
Poster
Full-text available
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) are an emerging platform capable of providing valuable data on vegetation structure, health, and productivity. With output products having much finer spatial resolutions than traditional satellite or aircraft imagery there is great potential for the application of UAS technology for mapping and monitoring vegetation co...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Digital flood-inundation maps for a 7.1-mile reach of the North Fork Kentucky River at Hazard, Kentucky (Ky.), were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Kentucky Silver Jackets and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District. The flood-inundation maps, which can be accessed through the USGS Flood Inundation...
Article
Full-text available
Characterizing compositional and structural aspects of vegetation is critical to effectively assessing land function. When priorities are placed on ecological integrity, remotely sensed estimates of fractional vegetation components (FVCs) are useful for measuring landscape-level habitat structure and function. In this study, we address whether FVC...
Article
Full-text available
Detecting newly established invasive plants is key to prevent further spread. Traditional field surveys are challenging and often insufficient to identify the presence and extent of invasions. This is particularly true for wetland ecosystems because of difficult access, and because floating and submergent plants may go undetected in the understory...
Article
High-level policy debates surrounding elephant management often dominate global conservation headlines, yet realities for people living with wildlife are not adequately incorporated into policymaking or evident in related discourse.1,2 Human health and livelihoods can be severely impacted by wildlife and indirectly by policy outcomes.3 In landscape...
