Dr. Marc R. Horney

Associate Professor, Rangeland Resource Management, Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo


Marc is a rangeland resources specialist in the animal science department at Cal Poly. Marc first began evaluating the use of multispectral remote sensing technologies for monitoring plant characteristics in the mid-1990s. Marc went on to work for Colorado State University Cooperative Extension, and then the University of California Cooperative Extension, where he continued his work in applications of aerial and satellite imagery for crop and rangeland management. At Cal Poly he is one of the original collaborators in the department of Aerospace Engineering’s Unmanned Flight Initiative program, which facilitates efforts of faculty and students in aerospace engineering to collaborate with faculty and students in other departments and colleges in designing and operating UAS platforms for practical production and scientific applications. This group is currently working on an interdisciplinary project investigating the use of hyperspectral imagery from UAVs for detecting signs of moisture stress in vineyards.
