Project: Squamish Estuary Mapping

Overview:

In collaboration with Quest University Canada and the District of Squamish, we worked in August 2018 to map 585 hectares of the Squamish Estuary using UAVs. At a resolution of 2.2 cm/pixel, this project represents the first high-resolution major baseline data set for the Squamish Estuary.

Objective:

To use multiple UAVs to create a snapshot of a very large area of the Squamish Estuary very quickly, at a consistent tidal height

Process:

Establish target area and data collection parameters, fly data collection mission, process and analyze images into maps and models.

Solution:

Provide end users with spatially accurate, high resolution map of the Squamish Estuary
