GI_Forum publishes high quality original research across the transdisciplinary field of Geographic Information Science (GIScience). The journal provides a platform for dialogue among GI-Scientists and educators, technologists and critical thinkers in an ongoing effort to advance the field and ultimately contribute to the creation of an informed GISociety. Submissions concentrate on innovation in education, science, methodology and technologies in the spatial domain and their role towards a more just, ethical and sustainable science and society. GI_Forum implements the policy of open access publication after a double-blind peer review process through a highly international team of seasoned scientists for quality assurance. Special emphasis is put on actively supporting young scientists through formative reviews of their submissions. Only English language contributions are published.

Abstract:
More than half of the U.S. dams are privately owned and experienced the overgrowth of trees. There is a need to improve dam inspection and maintenance in a timely manner. Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) have been increasingly utilized for near-surface landscape mapping and reconnaissance. This study tests an sUAS protocol of closed-canopy tree survey on earthen dams. A DJI Matrice 100 flight was launched on September 22, 2020. The orthoimage and 3D point cloud are extracted, and the canopy height model is built. Treetops and crowns are delineated using an integrated watershed segmentation and image segmentation procedure. The results include a tree survey inventory that contains the locations, tree heights and crowns of 284 trees growing on the downslope of the dam. Given the flight flexibility and fine 3D details acquired from inexpensive drones, sUAS has a high potential for assessing tree overgrowth toward remediation solutions of earthen dams.
