Study area

The study area in Eigenbilzen is situated in the agricultural zone east of the locality of Eigenbilzen, in the province of Limburg, Flanders, Belgium. The flights picture a wheat field where damage by wild boar is apparent.

Data collection

Data were collected by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) with a fixed wing drone Gatewing X100 in 2015 (2 flights). RGB data were acquired using an off-the-shelf Ricoh GR Digital IV camera, with the following image bands: 1: red, 2: green, 3: blue, 4: alpha channel. CIR (color-infrared) data were acquired using a NIR-enabled Ricoh GR Digital IV camera, with the following info bands: 1: NIR, 2: red, 3: green, 4: alpha channel.

Data processing

The raw data were processed to Digital Surface Models and orthophotos by INBO in 2015 using Agisoft PhotoScan Pro 1.0.4, a structure-from-motion (SfM) based photogrammetry software program.

Coordinate reference system

All geospatial data have the coordinate reference system EPSG:31370 - Belgian Lambert 72.

Files

  • Raw flight data: images and logs collected by the drone during flight. These files are zipped per flight, with the date (yyyymmdd) and flight number (x) indicated in the file name (flight_yyyymmdd_Bilzen_x.zip).
  • Processed data: Digital Surface Models (filename_DSM.tif) and orthophotos (filename_Ortho.tif) stitched together from the raw data. The included flight is indicated in the file name (e.g. 20150728_Bilzen_1_DSM.tif).
  • Ground control points: not applicable for this dataset.

Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF

The most efficient way to explore the processed data is by loading the Cloud Optimized GeoTIFFs we created for each processed file. Copy one of the file URLs below and follow e.g. the QGIS tutorial to load this type of file.
