BARLE VALLEY FORESTRY
PENNINGTON RIGG STRATIFICATION
25th April 2021
To provide our sister company, Barle Valley Forestry, with a orthomosaic to assist them conduct preliminary survey planning and stratification work.
An ongoing core service of ours is to provide aerial imagery and orthomosaics to supplement the terrestrial surveys of our sister company Barle Valley Forestry. Aerial imagery can be processed to create accurate, geolocated aerial maps that can be interpreted and combined with terrestrial field data to either create fully interactive layers on a GIS platform, or to be used as a standalone resource.
Conducting multiple assessments simultaneously reduces costs and greatly increases the efficiency of providing a number of our deliverables:
Boundary Mapping & Stratification
New Planting Stocking Assessment & SDA
Peatland & Hydrology Surveys
Tree Health & NDVI
Monitoring Storm Damage & Fire Modelling
This particular work, carried out in Hamsterley Forest, was for boundary mapping and stratification work. Our pilot covered just the one 61Ha site, capturing the entire area within an hour of arrival, with three flights lasting between 12-18 minutes each. The imagery was delivered the following day in the form of a 3.2cm/px orthomosaic.
