Dr. Randolph (Randy) Wynne, associate professor of forest biometry and geomatics at Virginia Tech will give a presentation on “monitoring forest growth and health through remote-sensing,” followed by a question and answer session, on May 13 at ImageTree headquarters, The United Center, Morgantown W.V.
Wynne is also associate director of the Conservation Management Institute, co-director of the Center for Environmental Applications of Remote Sensing, and remote sensing team leader for the Forest Nutrition Cooperative.
Wynne will address the “state of the art” of forestry remote sensing; where forestry remote sensing fits in the historical context; emerging trends in sensor development; Web-based delivery of spatial data and processing, and improved processing algorithms; changes in forestry (intensification, globalization, TIMOs/REITs, ecosystem services) and how they affect information required for sustainable forest management; and current collection methods for multiscale information on the forest resource and the best opportunities to improve both the value and quality of the information provided.
This is the second in the ImageTree Idea Leadership Series, created to promote innovative ideas for the preservation and management of forested environments.
Wynne’s presentation can also be viewed via Webinar and users can participate in the Q&A session by calling, toll free, 888-272-7337, conference ID 1013482.
