Heat Island Mapping – March 2020

In the aftermath of some extraordinary weather related events, there is much to consider when it comes to human impacts on climate change. Just what effect does sprawling suburbia have on increasing temperature and how effective can planting trees and creating green spaces be? Measuring temperatures using aerial imagery is something Outline know a little about. For some time now we have been fine tuning multi-spectral camera systems for locating Red Imported Fire Ants in Queensland with great success (see post here). This month we brought the technology a little closer to our own back yard as we commenced commercial scale thermal image acquisition over city areas, with lots more to follow – keep tuned.
