Soil erosion is widespread and affecting millions of hectares of land. Detailed information about the underlying processes at a high level of precision is required to take appropriate erosion control actions. However, erosion starts very locally and information at high spatial resolution is required.
The Flying Sensors of HiView in combination with the advanced analysis software can create very detailed digital elevation models showing the source of erosion. Moreover, by using a series of DEMs at specific times the progression of erosion can be monitored.
Typical examples of projects in the context of “Erosion monitoring using time-series of ultra-high resolution elevation models (DEM)” undertaken by HiView are:
