CSULB Geography’s River Ridge Ranch Project Featured in Drone Blog

Current research being conducted by CSULB’s Geography and Environmental Science and Policy departments took center stage in the current issue of Waypoint, a web log created and managed by leading fixed-wing drone manufacturer senseFly.  In this issue, Waypoint interviewed our GIS Lab Manager and drone pilot Scott Winslow who provided an overview of how our students and faculty are leveraging low-altitude remote sensing to benefit ecological research at River Ridge Ranch in the western Sierra Nevada foothills.  To learn more about how our department is taking to the sky to generate high-resolution imagery products for use inRemotely-sensed image of River Ridge Ranch photogrammetry and automated feature extraction, take a look at senseFly’s blog post titled How Fixed-Wing UAVs Improved GIS Mapping at CSU.
