Measuring the habitat condition of desert and savanna vegetation integrating on-ground biodiversity survey data, drone and satellite remote sensing

Project: Research

Project Details


The project will monitor vegetation structure and habitat condition using methods at different scales, establishing a relationship between on-ground biodiversity surveys (ie vegetation and trapping surveys), drone LIDAR and photogrammetry, and Sentinel and NOVASAR Satellite data. Sites will occur in two habitats in the Kimberley region, spinifex desert on Karajarri Country (Great Sandy Desert) and savanna on the Dampier Peninsula (Yawuru, Nyul Nyul and Bardi Jawi country). This work will then be communicated with the local traditional owner and broader community, including training and two-way sharing events with Aboriginal Rangers. On-ground surveys and drone mapping will start immediately and run until October 2024, whereas remote sensing and communication activities will finish at the end of the project.
