Remote Sensing Tools

Dean MacKenzie, Vertex


The primary goal of the proposed project is to test, validate and develop digital tools to monitor terrestrial and aquatic environments impacted by natural resource development and oil and gas operations. We are proposing to develop remote sensing techniques using Earth Observation (EO) image data and cutting edge machine learning (ML) technologies that will allow us to process large volumes of remotely-sensed imagery quickly and efficiently. We will be able to optimize the way environmental monitoring is currently conducted through improvements provided by the use and analysis of EO imagery and related spatial data.
