A unique learning opportunity
The Wheatland Lab provides graduate and undergraduate opportunities for hands-on learning using cutting-edge geospatial technologies and tools
What our students say ...
"I have learned how geospatial technology is used for effective and sustainable management of forest resources. From using drone aerial imagery to compiling an image mosaic of the landscape to using LiDAR to measure tree volume and topography. Using the Wheatland Lab to compile and turn geospatial data into accurate, usable information, helped me achieve my goal of a BS in Forestry from the University of Maine."
"Working with the Wheatland Lab has greatly increased my understanding of the technology and software used in my work surveying colonial nesting waterbirds. From providing unmanned aerial vehicle support to demonstrations of photogrammetry software, WGL has provided me with the tools necessary to optimize data collection and interpretation. I'll be graduating with a firm grasp on geospatial technologies thanks to WGL!"
"Working with the Wheatland Lab has been wonderful and a privilege. Staff and partners are knowledgeable in their field and have always been willing to help us with our remote sensing and geospatial projects. We have incorporated their expertise in developing our own project using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and aerial imagery and we continue to seek their input as we move forward. This partnership has given us access to expertise, technology, and experiences that may have been unavailable otherwise in a quickly developing field."
