Olds College is evaluating the potential of using remote sensing technology to aid in the completion of Detailed Site Assessments (DSAs). The College is investigating if the use of satellite and RPAS imagery can be used in the vegetation assessment component of cultivated DSAs. The project includes a literature review for the latest research on remote sensing techniques and how they may be used for vegetation assessments, especially in terms of DSAs. The chosen technologies will then be evaluated for their capabilities to assess vegetation.
