Satellite Images for Forest and Land Cover Restoration
Mapping and Monitoring for Reporting and Sustainable Development
Mapping of large, hardly accessible areas with various types of satellite data to better know your landscape
Monitoring using benefit from accessibility to multi-sensor satellite archives using machine learning algorithms for automatic pattern recognition (classification) and for time series analysis for change detection
Learn how to map your forest and restore your land cover using open source tools and taking benefit of High Performance Computing technologies (Cloud Computing)
The role of monitoring of Forest and Land Cover is essential…
- to provide evidence and communicate about Land Cover Restoration projects (e.g. in the context of Land Degradation Neutrality, SDG Goal 15.3.1)
- to support adopting sustainable land cover management and decision making
- to report about the Land Cover and Land Cover Change in Climate Change mitigations context (UNFCCC REDD+ “Reduction of Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation” mechanism)
Forest logging activities detection
Sentinel-1 Radar (SAR) satellite image – Guyana Road detection of forest logging concession is vital for forest concession management and reporting transparency for sustainable management certification.
Gold mining identification
SAR can help to identify legal or illegal mining activities.
Forest and Land Cover mapping
In combination with optical Sentinel-2 and Landsat satellite images we can support you with the creation of actual and high resolution forest and land use / land cover maps.
