David Kidner, University of South Wales
The presentation will demonstrate the use of drones for a number of different aerial surveys in Wales – each addressing a different environmental application. These include coal tip modelling and analysis; identifying invasive species such as Japanese Knotweed; and monitoring coastal (beach and cliff) erosion. The focus in each case is on the development of low-cost and practical solutions which will hopefully encourage more organisations to adopt the technology for today’s environmental problems.
