Drones: Explore the Landscape (Technical & Physical)

This Session Will Consist of Two Main Components: 1. Showcasing some of the technical challenges and advantages of using Drones as research tools, we will hear brief reports from the following researchers. L Barbieri who has been monitoring the effect different farming techniques have on green house gas emissions, M Messinger who use drones to monitor deforestation, and S Barberie who has been quantifying glaciers in New Zealand. Each will present on the remote sensing techniques used and address some of the challenges of the "Technical Landscape". This component will also contain time for some questions and discussion. 2. NASA intern K Bhakta will present some of the preliminary results from a survey he is conducting answering 2 questions. (1) Who's using drones for earth science currently and what/how/why/where are they doing it?, and (2) What software is out there for processing drone captured data, what formats does it support and what metadata standards does it meet? His results are being used to build part of a Drones in Earth Science resource catalog the cluster is creating. We will therefore also present to the community our move to using the ESIP Open Science Framework infrastructure as a means of enabling the cluster and community to share resources, code, and data. Finally we hope the results of Bhakta's work will prompt some community discussion around the ongoing question regarding data and metadata standards for Earth Science Drones.
