To demonstrate SLIC-UAV, support vector machines and random forests were used to predict the species of hand-labelled crowns in a restoration concession in Indonesia.  ...  Here we present a new pipeline, SLIC-UAV, for processing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) imagery to map early-successional species in tropical forests.  ...  Automated Species Mapping With SLIC-UAV The challenge in tracking biodiversity recovery during forest restoration is producing species classification methods that generalise over large contiguous areas  ...
