Remote Sensing with UAVs and eCognition

PLoS published an interesting new article about the use of UAVs to track invasive weeds in maize fields using UAV imagery and remote sensing techniques. This is a good example of an article that uses remote sensing and UAVs in an analytic sense and not just "camera in the air." While elevated camera angles are cool, they do not really take advantage of the technology nor offer much in the way of actual research. This article points to how this kind of work can be done (and will be a good article to use for our REU program). http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0077151
