    Abstract

    Advances in the field of sensors, digital cameras and communications can be leveraged for effective remote resource management. The WiSE (Wireless Internet Sensing Environment) project is researching and testing new techniques for monitoring the natural environment that provides essential information for taking informed decisions for sustainability and land managementThe project uses digital cameras to record high quality imagery - both still images and video content. Advanced video coding methods to detect and compress relevant imagery, which can be retrieved using advanced networking (e.g. satellite or wireless backhaul). This flexible approach represents a new paradigm for collecting environmental data enhancing accuracy and quality, with the potential to revolutionize data collection. The techniques are expected to find application in many arenas allowing future support of a range of applications.
