Processionaria: Monitoraggio remoto multi – scala con tecnologie innovative (drone – satellite) per la mappatura e valutazione dell’incidenza della processionaria (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) su areale boschivo della costa ionica in Basilicata e sviluppo di un sistema per interventi puntuali a rateo variabile

Multiscale sampling and punctiform treatment of the pinne moth. Monitoring by a combination of drone, and GPS dataset for the identification of infested areas. High resolution images collected by the drone will be compared with free satellite ones with a resolution of 10m/pixel. This to check the reliability of free images and the needing of more defined ones to be paid for.
Field monitoring will be used to check the reliability of remote sampling and treatment as well as to collect the natural enemies of pine moth in experimental plots.
