Unmanned Aerial Vehicle used to improve irrigation

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle used to improve irrigation

You might think that drones are just for the military or law enforcement, but that’s not the case. The truth is that you may be seeing them in the woods soon.

Unmanned aerial vehicles  (UAVs or Drones) can have many positive uses, like the UAV pictured here that was used to improve irrigation practices.

Michael Wing, assistant professors of Geomatics at the OSU College of Forestry, will be presenting a talk entitled Unmanned Aerial Surveillance Use in Harvest Unit Layout at the 2014 Oregon Logging Conference held February 19-22.

If you’d like find out more about UAVs and the role they will be playing in forestry’s future, plan to attend the 2014 OLC. For information about registration, just click here.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
