A new era for nature conservation using hyperspectral and lidar data; Oostvaardersplassen as a case study
This project aims to develop advanced data analysis methods for monitoring and increasing our understanding on biodiversity dynamics in nature reserves such as the Oostvaardersplassen.

Earth observation methodologies have incredibly improved over the past decade. As a result, applications to nature management come in range, but these demand new ecoinformatics tools for nature conservation, e.g., for tracking animals based on hyperspectral data, and for linking spatial and temporal patterns of animal movement to vegetation characteristics.
