The participant will assist with various fix-wing mounted structure from motion (SfM) photogrammetry projects. This consists of collecting imagery in standard color (RGB) and near-infrared (that is used to generate detailed digital elevation models (DEM) and analyzed for landcover classifications. The participant will help process, analyze, and collect these datasets and integrate them with other datasets. We desire a candidate with remote-sensing experience, especially with imagery analysis and landcover classification; or a background conducting SfM or analyzing LiDAR/TLS point clouds.
