Precision Agriculture & Ground Truthing using Spectral Signatures
This February, our ASD webinar series of 2018 began with a focus on the application study of precision agriculture and spectral signatures; featuring the ASD FieldSpec® 4 Hi-Res: High Resolution Spectroradiometer.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Use of the FieldSpec® 4 Hi-Res for ground truthing purposes and as a tool to verify the accuracy of UAV and satellite imagery
- Use of the FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res for spectral unmixing and classification of land cover types in multispectral satellite imagery
- Example case study of NIR technology and spectral signatures of strawberry plants to detect and monitor Two-Spotted Spider Mite (TSSM) infestation
