In this sustainability initiative, BCIT students and instructors are gathering data on a salmon-spawning habitat in BC.

A combined group from Ecological Restoration, Forest and Natural Areas Management, and Geomatics are using RPAS to analyze the sensitive salmon-spawning habitat at the Cheakamus Centre in Squamish. Students, faculty, and industry partner UAviation were recently onsite to gather data, including LiDAR captured by UAviation and thermal, RGB, and multispectral images collected by the RPAS Hub.

This project is supported by the Green Value Strategies in Development Fund, a BCIT endowment that advances sustainable practices between the natural environment and the built environment. Watch for some exciting visuals coming soon!
