eCPD - HEI Environmental Applications of Spatial Technologies

Date & Time

Friday, 29 Oct 2021
4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

This webinar was presented live on 29 April 2020. 

Hunter Environmental Institute has partnered with the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute to present this webinar with three pre-eminent speakers, exploring the ways in which spatial technologies can be used in the work we do as environmental professionals.




Amy Steiger (Cardno)

Title: RPAS and thermal cameras for wildlife detection post-bushfire and coastal monitoring

Details: Amy has promoted the use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) gaining experience with remote data capture to cover a range of coastal, environmental and land development applications.

RPAS thermal inspection capability was deployed this summer in wildlife detection post-bushfires.

Amy has also done volumetric surveys of beaches and flown isolated coastal cliff faces in NSW to capture high-resolution photography and derived photogrammetric models to identify geotechnical hazards and contribute to coastal monitoring.


Charity Mundava (WaterNSW)

Title: Remote Sensing in Water Management

Details: Charity will discuss the use of GIS and remote sensing to support water catchment management, feasibility and environmental studies for critical water infrastructure across the state and to support ongoing research into and management of river catchments. Charity will touch on the significance and spatial support for this in the recent NSW bushfires coordinating reservoir availability (in drought) and access for helicopter water drops and supporting bushfire fighting efforts.


Associate Professor In-Young Yeo (University of Newcastle)

Title: Remote sensing and GIS applications for water resources management

Details: Dr Yeo will explain how remote sensing can be used as a technique for assessing soil moisture using multi-source data fusion approaches, vegetation monitoring and water requirement with remote sensing and water balance approach.

She will explain the impacts of conservation management practices in agricultural catchments assessed using catchment model and remote sensing/GIS drawing on examples from Australian and American case studies.
