NOVA course “High throughput field phenotyping and vegetation mapping”, 5 ECTS NMBU June 12-16

This course aims to introduce the emerging research fields of high throughput plant phenotyping used for vegetation mapping and plant breeding, with a focus on remote sensing field phenotyping methodologies and related data analysis.

The basic principles of commonly used remote sensing UAV-based imaging methods in high-throughput field phenotyping and vegetation mapping will be introduced together with practical examples. A special focus will be put on giving the students hands-on training in use of field phenotyping methodologies, including gathering data from hand-held devices and UAVs, and analysis of the data to answer biological questions. The objective of the course is to provide the participating students with the basic knowledge and understanding of remote sensing and field phenotyping methodologies and associated data processing as research tools in agricultural and biological sciences.
