Wow thanks theo for the wealth of information, my lecturer is also a part
of this mailing forum and he lambasted me for asking elementary questions
😂, but if you dont know you gotta ask right?
(CiR are false colors btw)

.anyways I do have time, because this is going to be part of my masters
work . I will table these suggestions to him and get back to you if

Thank you so much once again Sir

Warmest Regards

Hi Khalid

SANSA has access to ADS Pleiades 0.5m GSD satellite imagery (can be tasked,
or you can look for catalogue).

1. That should fit the student budget.

2. Unsure.

3. Try SANSA, maybe? Otherwise the CGA at Stellenbosch University.

4. OBIA packages, or (if you are feeling very lucky and have time to train
the classifier, supervised pixel based image classifiers coupled with a DSM
and DEM).

Alternatively, there are UAV based solutions out there. If you need help
with those, give me a shout. We have pretty good contacts that side that
could do it, whom we have used before.

Hi Guys  , hope you are all keeping well.

I am attempting a project to measure street Tree biomass or tree presence
in the greater Durban region. I have a few questions though

1.  is very high spatial resolution data available for use (on a students

2. are Colour Infra-Red and False Colour images the same thing?

3. Where can I find CIR/ False colour images of Durban?

4. Does anyone have any input as to how this project can be achieved with
as few additional resources as possible? 😂

Thanks and kind Regards
