…Greg and Scott have been handling the processing and organizing of UAV imagery, but it was someone else’s turn. I drew the short straw so I went to the UAV staging area. I thought I would be there all day so I just wore my flip flops. They only were doing two flights with the Gatewing X100, so I was free to go collect some data. I put a level logger where the main stream enters the ocean to see the possible tidal influence… I also mapped all the culverts and areas where freshwater enters the ocean along the front of the valley. I did get to see the take off and landing of one of the X100 flights. It’s amazing to see a totally automated flight go successfully.

This afternoon we had a meeting about the status of everyone’s project. It was good to hear where everyone else is with theirs. I’ve formulated a plan for the rest of the data I need to collect. Wednesday and Thursday will be all data processing and preparing of presentations. It is definitely going to be a busy week coming up… Tomorrow is a day off to see some touristy sights!
