Efficient drone-based mapping of large conservation areas

Combining satellite with drone-based remote sensing for Monitoring of conservation areas of San MartĂ­n department in Peru

 

This feasibility study has been carried out in the San MartĂ­n department in Peru, a territory of about 150.000 hectares of very steep terrain. The goal of the study was to evaluation the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones) as a tool for the monitoring of the conservation state of the Regional Conservation Area Cordillera Escalera.

Using drone technology in combining with satellite based remotesensing is most promising for continuous monitoring of large scale forest areas.
