  Virtual session
This session is in the past.
The virtual space is closed.

In this short technical demonstration, I’ll explore some of the ways that Planetscope’s new 8-band capabilities can be used to both detect and monitor invasive plant species, such as Watermoss-Salvinia, within water bodies. We’ll focus on the role that the 4 new spectral bands (Coastal Blue (433-453nm) , Yellow (600-620nm), Green-II (547-583nm) and Red-edge (697-713nm)) can have in this use case. I’ll compare how some spectral indices unlocked via 8-band data compare to previous 4-band, RGB NIR datasets, and show how these processes may be accomplished in GIS software, for example, ArcGIS Pro.
