Digital Imaging Basics for Natural Resource Managers
Abstract:The increase in processing speed and the miniaturization of digital storage have made digital imaging available to anyone. One advantage of digital imagery for natural resource managers is that it can be enhanced on the computer to bring out details of interest--whether vegetative stress, species composition, or growth and volume. However, there are many considerations that need to be addressed when contracting for digital imaging services or purchasing your own equipment and performing the work in-house.
