No Trespassing

Posted on June 27, 2012 by Katherine Macklin

My morning looked similar to yesterday’s, but today I worked on the easternmost half of our study site. Today went a lot smoother since I had a better idea of what I was doing plus there was less plant diversity on this part and a little more trespassing required to get to the far end of the study range.

We went to the lab after lunch to start working with our data, and what I have so far can be seen below:

This image shows an aerial image (Worldview 2) of our study site in false-color near IR. The points represent individual patches of vegetation with red representing alien, green representing native, and blue indicating mixed alien/native patches.

The above image is an inset of the first image and is a section that shows different vegetation types very well. In general, the darkest brown/red is a species of ironwood tree, the blue is dirt, the white is sand, the lightest pink is naupaka, and the medium red is kiawa (pronounced key-ah-vah). Not all parts of the study area show this as well as this section, so we will see how well my classification works later on.
