Orthophotos and DSMs/DTM derived from RPAS flights over the nature reserve Landschap De Liereman in Flanders, Belgium



Landschap De Liereman is a nature reserve situated in Oud-Turnhout, in the province of Antwerp, Flanders, Belgium. The area is managed by the nature conservation NGO Natuurpunt and consists of a diverse landscape of wet and dry heathlands, Nardus grasslands on siliceous soils, forests and transition mires, as well as some remaining arable fields and high-intensity agricultural grasslands.

Data were collected by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) with a Gatewing X100 drone in 2015 (7 flights). An additional flight campaign was commissioned by INBO and carried out by the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) in 2017 with an eBee drone with Multispec 4C camera. Raw data for this flight campaign are not available.

The raw data were processed to Digital Surface Models and orthophotos by VITO in 2017. For the 2017 campaign by VITO, the outputs also include a Digital Terrain Model (DTM).
