Orthophotos and DSMs derived from RPAS flights over the nature reserve Averbode Bos & Heide in Flanders, Belgium



Averbode Bos & Heide is a nature reserve situated near the locality of Averbode, in the province of Flemish-Brabant, Flanders, Belgium. The area is managed by the nature conservation NGO Natuurpunt and consists of wet and dry heathlands, inland dunes, forests and moorland pools. In the years prior to the drone flights, large stands of mostly coniferous trees were cut to enable ecological restoration of heathlands and moorland pools. The drone flight was triggered by a particular interest to monitor the effects of this restoration.

Data were collected by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) with a Gatewing X100 drone in 2015 and 2016 (6 flights).

The raw data were processed to Digital Surface Models and orthophotos by the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) in 2017.
