senseFly’s Ebee Plus Helps Keep People Safe from Ice Hazards on Lake Winnipeg


Recommended Posts

Canadian company NextGen Environment Research Inc. has been using senseFly’s eBee Plus to track hazards on the ice at Lake Winnipeg.

The project is part of the Canadian Space Agencies Earth Observation Applications Development Program (EODAP), whose overall goal is to increase awareness about the growing dangers of ice travel.

Historically, the ice on Lake Winnipeg is so thick that you could travel across it without any issues. But climate change has steadily reduced the level of ice on the lake, with studies projecting that the ice mass will melt significantly in the near future.

In addition to hazards posed due to ice melting, the ice can change dramatically in a short period of time, which also poses dangers to ice travel.

Read today's article to learn more about how NextGen used the eBee Plus to map ice hazards on Lake Winnipeg.
