The Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering at Colorado State University seeks to fill a position created as part of an internal award from the Office of the Vice President for Research to initiate a new CSU Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Center. This position is half-time (50% FTE) for…Continue
It seems the data site of Ecosynth is down. We are trying to learn this tool to use it in our study of biomass calculations in our campus of IISc Bangalore.
It would be great if we can get access to sample dataset images so that we can understand the working of the tools as such. We shall be thankful for accessing the datasets. Kindly let us know.
I am a new Ecosynther. I am following your papers for designing and improving last year's flight plans. AgiSoft.JPG here is a screen shot of photo list shown in Agisoft photo viewer window. These photos were taken from a lodgepole pine stand. Agisoft can't read most of the images, as only a few are ticked (according to my understanding). Please advise me how can I make these…Continue
An Ecosynth training was held at UMBC in December 2015 with participants from the GES graduate school and faculty of UMBC and UMCP. The training first organized a pre-flight checklist and reviewed flight safety measures including mention of current FAA regulations. In addition to the mechanics of lightweight UAV flight, participants developed and executed their own flight plan using Mission Planner software. Students…Continue
Have a look at Elsevier Atlas- where our work on 3D scanning of tropical rainforest recovery in Costa Rica with Zak Zahawi, Karen Holl, and Leighton Reid has won the Elsevier Atlas Award for September 2015!…Continue
I teach at UMCP in the Department of Geographical Sciences' professional masters in GIS program. One class that I teach is an advanced remote sensing class focused on lidar. I would love to bring Ecosynth into my course, perhaps as a lab assignment. That way I can introduce my students to a low-cost alternative to lidar for generating point clouds.
I have yet to use Ecosynth myself, so I'm a bit of a beginner (my expertise is mostly in lidar remote sensing).
