It is amazing to see how fast our industry is advancing. Reliable, repeatable data collection is no longer the challenge it once was. Through the efforts of many of you on this site, organizations are now able to start focusing on how to leverage reliable data collection with advanced sensors in new ways.
Two dimensional vegetation indices have now moved into the third dimension.
Please take a moment to review the Parrot/Pix4D Climate Innovation Grant. We are looking for leading edge climate researchers to start thinking about how to apply autonomous vehicles, advanced sensors and best of breed processing software to difficult challenges related to the climate that we all share.
The best part is FREE Sequoia sensors with Pix4D licenses!!

To help foster further innovation surrounding the impact of climate change, Parrot and Pix4d are announcing a Climate Innovation Grant. This grant program consists of a hardware and software award. Successful proposals will receive a Parrot Sequoia multispectral sensor, a Pix4D software license, and training.
With climate innovation as the underlying theme, grant proposals should include a geographical/mapping component using UAVs and Pix4D mapping software, as well as multispectral imagery related to the technical capabilities of the Parrot Sequoia sensor.
This competitive grant program is open to students and researchers across the globe and across a range of disciplines, from archaeology to zoology.
Deadline for submissions is January 31st, 2016. You can apply at edu.parrot.com/climate
