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.
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.
