Paper Abstract

In recent years, satellite remote sensing have been widely used in dynamic monitoring of Green Tide. However, the images captured by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are rarely used in floating green tide monitoring. In this paper, a quad-rotor unmanned aerial vehicle was used to mapping the coverage of green tide on the seabeach in Haiyang with three algorithms based on RGB image.The conclusions are as follows: there is discrepancy in both maximum value band among RGB and the difference in the green band for a true color aerial photograph taken from a UAV; the best index for floating green tide mapping on seabeach is GLI. It is possible to have a comprehensive, objective and scientific understanding of the floating green tide mapping with aid of UAV based on RGB image in the seabeach.
