World-View 3 used by scientists to count birds


Here’s a link to an article about how scientists used satellite imagery from WV3 to count two species of Albatross on remote islands - using the same map/tile system used by Tomnod. The article also has a few screen shots of the images. Way to go WV3!

The article also mentions how satellite imagery was used for count Weddell seals in 2011. And at the end of the article, it explains how readers can participate in the various counting campaigns by visiting TOMNOD! It gives the link to the Weddell seal 2 campaign. Cool!
