The case study includes:

  • Photographic and point cloud data of an infested zone of forest in Vermont
  • Details of the drone solution, which consisted of a DJI Matrice 300 and the YellowScan Mapper, and the outputs generated
  • Advantages of the YellowScan Mapper LiDAR sensor for data capture in forest environments
