Abstract:

Monitoring the success of large-scale submerged aquatic vegetation SAV restoration projects requires the ability to detect and map the presence or absence of SAV, as well as assess changes in SAV distributions over time. Aerial photography is generally considered to be the most widely used, versatile, and relatively economical form of remote sensing Lillesand and Kiefer 2000, and is the most common source of SAV mapping information McKenzie et al. 2001. More often than not, however, difficulties arise that result in an undesirable or sometimes unusable photographic product.
