Battelle scientists are in the midst of the three-decade scientific mapping effort that became fully operational this year. The company showed off the tools of the trade Tuesday at the Ohio State University Airport.

The National Ecological Observatory Network, or NEON, relies in part on low flying planes equipped with an array of specialized cameras and sensors.

Flight operations manager Nick Marusich says in addition to a high definition camera, the plane has LIDAR—a laser based system similar to RADAR—and a hyper spectrometer.
