The University of Idaho, The Nature Conservancy and a group of private ranchers are teaming up to study remote
sensing technologies to monitor vegetation across the Zumwalt Prairie in northeast Oregon. Vincent Jansen,
a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Idaho, will discuss how LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) and satellite
data are providing different views of the prairie, as well as the ability to link remote sensing data to decision
support tools for ranchers and land managers.
