Accurate elevation data, which can be extracted from very high-resolution (VHR) satellite images, are vital for many engineering and land planning applications. In this way, the main goal of this work is to evaluate the capabilities of VHR Deimos-2 panchromatic stereo pairs to obtain digital surface models (DSM) over different land covers (bare soil, urban and agricultural greenhouse areas). As a step prior to extracting the DSM, different orientation models based on refined rational polynomial ...

The total area of plastic-covered crops of 3019 million hectares has been increasing steadily around the world, particularly in the form of crops maintained under plastic-covered greenhouses to control their environmental conditions and their growth, thereby increasing production. This work analyzes the worldwide research dynamics on remote sensing-based mapping of agricultural greenhouses and plastic-mulched crops throughout the 21st century. In this way, a bibliometric analysis was carried out...

This work presents a new teaching proposal for the technical drawing (graphic expression) classes, in which the “Design Process” is incorporated into the classroom. The methodology has been experimentally worked through a seminar-workshop with a group of students of the Master’s Degree in Secondary Education Teaching (specialization in “Drawing, Image and Plastic Arts”) of the University of Almeria (Spain). The objective is to provide future teachers with perspectives and alternative tools in or...

Traditional studies aimed at developing allometric models to estimate dry above-ground biomass (AGB) and other tree-level variables, such as tree stem commercial volume (TSCV) or tree stem volume (TSV), usually involves cutting down the trees. Although this method has low uncertainty, it is quite costly and inefficient since it requires a very time-consuming field work. In order to assist in data collection and processing, remote sensing is allowing the application of non-destructive sampling me...

Abstract Agriculture under Plastic Covered Greenhouses (PCG) has represented a step forward in the evolution from traditional to industrial farming. However, PCG-based agricultural model has been also criticized for its associated environmental impact such as plastic waste, visual impact, soil pollution, biodiversity degradation and local runoff alteration. In this sense, timely and effective PCG mapping is the only way to help policy-makers in the definition of plans dealing with the trade-off ...

Remote sensing is revolutionizing the way in which forests studies are conducted, and recent technological advances, such as Structure from Motion (SfM) photogrammetry from Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), are providing more efficient methods to assist in REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) monitoring and forest sustainable management. The aim of this work was to develop and test a methodology based on SfM from UAV to generate high quality Digital Terrain Models (DT...

ABSTRACTA novel methodological approach is presented to estimate the shoreline change rate in complex coastal settings by using multi-source/multi-temporal shoreline data extracted from both orthoimages and digital elevation models. Several stages are covered to integrate the information available for the coastal area under study by means of a well-balanced and robust data fusion approach: i) determining the most accurate approach for extracting each shoreline from the different available source...
