I've seem some software somewhere that does it. From memory it's called crumple pro or something like that. The reason I'm going GoPro apart from owning a couple is the ability to set them up to take a picture every…"
Thanks for the update. I also contributed to get the filter which I plan to use with my GoPro on a H frame Quad to do some small scale ndvi mapping of agricultural trials, parks, sporting fields etc. My fall back if this…"
The Public Lab Organization which Grass Roots Mapping Google Group are currently running a kickstarter for a low cost NDVI camera and a blue filter to modify existing cameras to take IR instead of red. The details are here :…"
I'm looking to get a GoPro 3d case. At the moment I'm working out how to mount a visible light filter to my existing GoPro, taking the IR images then RGB and post processing. For the filter I'm using Perspex…"
I am soil conservationist in Australia so I understand exactly what you are after. The challenge apart from the legal ones outlined are the data ones. LIDAR is very data hungry with small areas producing several hundred or even…"
I went low tech and used a clip lid plastic food container. I mounted the lid on the frame with a O rings holding the board in place. I drilled a hole in the side of the container base with another O ring for the wiring to ESC…"
"thanks for that. How did you trigger the camera? I want to take shots of crops and pasture and then post process the results. Hence my preference for a Go Pro with its ability to take multiple timed shots."
"Not wanting to dwell on the point. The costing comes from a couple of people I know who are currently involved in the process. The CASA visit alone is around $5,000 to come and watch you fly, the manuals are around the $3,500. Then…"
There has been a lot of discussion about this on the RC Forums recently. The issue is the CASA regulations. Basically if you want to charge even a single $$ for material that you've obtained from your UAV you are a…"
Thanks for the response. The answer is yes. I've been discussing with Michael the supply of the collars, VHF and UHF download system around the 50g mark. We already have an automatic UHF download system which can run as…"
"Hi Joe. Looks like a very interesting project. As someone with a foot in both the UAV/Quadcopter camp and the tracking wildlife camp I'm waiting for more updates.
I'm also interested in the mechanics of your tracking…"
You would probably be interested in the work that Joe and Gisella Noci are doing in Namibia - do a search on 'nampilot'. They are much further down the road than we are. Competent operators! They use UHF tags on their critters.
I've also found a fella based in Sydney who has published on use of UAV for automated searching for VHF tagged wildlife. Is a heavy duty paper that is more about the robotics and coding rather than use of the tool. He's still on leave at the moment so I will catch in a week or so and hopefully get some plain english discussion going.
