I'm a field scientist. Did you just put me out of a job?
Fodar allowed us to finally resolve which is the tallest peak in Arctic Alaska, with Fodar matching our DGPS to within centimeters. Dr. Nolan was a pleasure to work with and the whole process was far more affordable than I imagined.
Dr. Nolan acquired and delivered a DEM and ortho to us of a large area of the North Slope within two weeks of funding. The data were delivered exactly as specified. The combination of cost and quality have allowed us to study denning habitats with unprecedented detail.
We found Dr. Nolan's fodar measurements so accurate and cost-effective that we decided to lease a system from to operate on our own so that we could use it all the time.
We were extremely satisfied with the rapid collection and delivery timelines (<1 week from funding). The delivered products were ready for immediate use and are fully meeting our needs for a rapid, high-quality DEM and ortho product in support of geohazard assessments in coastal Alaskan villages.
Dr. Nolan's Fodar maps have allowed us to detect and measure permafrost melt over huge areas for a fraction of the cost and effort of measuring just a few features on the ground.
Dr. Nolan's SfM measurements of snow depth at my field sites really worked and have tremendous potential for snow science.
Fairbanks Fodar was able to synchronize their acquisitions with our field work on the Arctic Ocean coast and the airborne data were processed by the time we returned from the field!
We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
