The special issue on remote sensing training for ecology and conservation is finally out. From the RSEC blog post: Over recent decades remote sensing (RS) has made valuable contributions to ecology and conservation. However, despite its clear value, the potential of RS has not yet been fully realized, and training in the tools and applications for RS is limited. While collection of and access to data are becoming ever cheaper and easier, limited analytical expertise hinders their wider use. Furthermore, the interdisciplinary nature of the research at the interface between remote sensing, ecology and conservation presents its own challenges. It is essential that we standardise not only the techniques for handling the complex spatial data but also the training required to utilise these techniques to the best advantage.
