KABLOOM – maca flowers in spring

Saturday 7th September NAMGA Field Day – To view and discuss completed works at several farms that have been involved in the Local Land Services LIDAR mapping project.

LiDAR, or light detection and ranging, is a popular remote sensing method used for measuring the exact distance of an object on the earth’s surface. Even though it was first used in the 1960s when laser scanners were mounted to aeroplanes, LiDAR didn’t get the popularity it deserved until twenty years later. It was only during the 1980s after the introduction of GPS that it became a popular method for calculating accurate geospatial measurements.

Todays field day was about exploring erosion control problems and solutions on three farms. Thank you to the three farms Rankings, Duncans and Williams.
