Image Acquisition Resource Mapping -- Remote Sensing and GIS for Conservation

Thermal Scanning

Thermal Scanning with Research Aviation & Mapping Science, LLC. Resource Mapping is a member of a group of environmental scientists dedicated to the technical application of Remote Sensing. In conjunction with Research Aviation, we have recently added a thermal scanning camera to our sensor package, a device that images transmitted heat rather than reflected light. The camera is designed to provide the same field of view as our multispectral camera. The image can be registered to the bands as an additional layer of information in spectral classification.

Research Aviation will be utilizing this system to study thermal leakage in modern buildings and identify point source heat pollution in New England rivers. Resource Mapping has been finding other applications in land and wildlife surveys.
