February's ASD Webinar - "Precision Agriculture & Groundtruthing using Spectral Signatures"

February 06, 2018

This February, the ASD 2018 webinar series begins with a focus on the application study of precision agriculture and spectral signatures, featuring ASD’s FieldSpec® 4 Hi-Res NG 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

About our Speaker:

Chris Crockett is the Director of Research and Grower Services at Highland Precision Ag. He holds a B.S. in Biology, B.S. in Environmental Studies, an M.S. in Entomology, and is pursuing his PhD in Entomology at the University of Florida. His research is focused on agricultural remote sensing for improved detection and monitoring of insect and disease pests, and the use of GIS tools for improved pest management of agricultural ecosystems.

Hang out with us in our Backyard at ASPRS!

January 30, 2018

Malvern Panalytical is in our own spatially located Denver, Colorado ASD backyard this year at the annual ASPRS (The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing) conference

ASPRS, the imaging & geospatial information society, teams with ILMF (International LiDAR Mapping Forum) this year to create for a combined geospatial event you do not want to miss! Network with geospatial peers and colleagues, build your technical expertise via conference workshops, see technology solutions for mapping on display in the exhibitor hall!   

From February 5-7, find us at Booth #710, displaying and demonstrating the following instruments:

See what these field portable, ruggedized near-infrared (NIR) spectroradiometers and spectrometers can do to best assist your remote sensing efforts and measurements with increased precision and accuracy.

Don't fly under the LiDAR on this one... put us on your map and stop by!

Going beyond spectral vegetation indices...

December 23, 2014

Partial least squares regression (PLSR) is a powerful tool that makes use of the information at all wavelengths and provides the means for the quantitative determination of a wide variety of plant canopy properties. Past studies that limited their analysis to the use of spectral indices (e.g. NDVI, SAVI, PVI - see links below for more details) often weren't able to take advantage of the full spectrum since multispectral systems provide information at a limited set of wavelengths.

Shhhh... ASD to Attend WHISPERS 2013 Workshop on Hyperspectral Image and Signal Processing

June 18, 2013

What do you get when you mix remote sensing and a number of "free roaming" alligators? Find out at the 5th annual Whispers workshop in Gainesville, Florida from June 25-28, 2013. (Don't worry - Gainesville's free roaming gators won't actually be allowed into any of the workshops.)

How to Improve the Utility of Field-collected Spectral Signatures Presented by ASD at SPIE DSS 2012

April 13, 2012

Two weeks from now, the SPIE 2012 Defense, Security and Sensing conference will convene - the largest unclassified event of its kind showcasing the latest in technology, thought leadership and technical presentations.

ASD’s own CTO and co-founder, Dr. Brian Curtiss, will present as one of the notable speakers at the conference. Additionally, ASD will demonstrate the latest in remote sensing technology at our booth #2210.

Curtiss’ presentation, “Collection and Control of Spectral Signatures in the Field,” promises to be a highlight of the conference.
