CATgeo has conducted coastal and marine monitoring surveys using a combination of UAS/multispectral and RGB sensors to help detect changes in ecosystems.
CATgeo can monitor algae blooms, vegetation, and marine populations using our UAS/drone sensor technology. Multispectral imaging enables the isolation of spectral bands to identify different harmful species of algae.
