Spatial Modeling for Wildlife Applications Using FLIR Imagery and ERDAS IMAGINE Webinar


Wildlife biologists are often tasked with providing population counts. This can be extremely tedious and labor intensive. Combining thermal imagery with spatial modeling provides a simple solution to this task.

In this session, learn how this alternative approach provides a quick answer, so you can focus on more important work.


Join Jeff Van de Vaarst, technical consultant for Hexagon US Federal, to learn about:

  • What type of imagery is optimal for counting populations
  • How to interpret the imagery
  • How to build a spatial model that can quickly provide population counts
  • How spatial models can be used by a multitude of people without any programming experience
