RCI recognizes student operator and Junior Computer Science major Dexter Richards for his outstanding work in developing, designing, and testing CanopyApp. Sponsored by Annette Schloss of the UNH Earth Systems Research Center, CanopyApp is a multi-platform app that measures forest canopy cover in photographs taken by users. The application works by masking colors specified by the user and then generating a percentage of canopy cover. Designed for use by foresters, or anyone interested in canopy density, the app serves as a digital substitute for, or supplement to, a hand-held device call
