At ARSL we carry out multi-disciplinary research contributing to the advancement of remote sensing applications in environmental science and infrastructure information modelling. We work with a range of platforms from Unmanned Aerial systems to spaceborne data. Our current research focuses on:

  • Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) integration
  • Hyperspectral data
  • Airborne imagery
  • LiDAR
  • Thermal imaging

  • SfM photogrammetry
  • Regional-scale satellite image analysis
  • Cubesat image analysis
  • Data fusion
  • Virtual reality visualization

As the impacts of climate change are expected to increase, Canada must build resilience through science-based initiatives and synergistic partnerships. Multi-scale Earth observation science is at the forefront of this innovation.

We are leading an intensive research program applying RPAS to natural hazards with a focus on wildfires and volcanoes. More details to come soon!

Check out our latest wildfire research video and our Poás volcano video.
