Apan, Armando and Chandler, Owen and Young, Frank R. and Maraseni, Tek Narayan (2005) Opportunities and limitations of remote sensing for crop loss (hail damage) assessment in the insurance industry. In: 2005 Spatial Sciences Institute Biennial Conference: Spatial Intelligence, Innovation and Praxis (SSC2005), 12-16 Sep 2005, Melbourne, Australia.
Crop loss assessment in the insurance industry should be conducted efficiently, cost effectively and accurately. While
crop loss adjusters in Australia have been implementing their own crop assessing systems with acceptable success, the
use of remote sensing imagery offers potential to enhance the current systems. Our project aimed to: a) assess the
relationship between crop defoliation and spectral data, and to b) identify the situations or conditions where
contemporary remotely sensed imagery can be used in assessing crop loss due to hailstorm.
