The objective of the project is to develop algorithms and services for
Biomass and Timber Mapping for Innovative Forestry Management. 


The project has four major work packages: 

  1. Above-ground biomass estimation and change detection using Synthetic Aperature Radar (SAR) data (Sentinel-1, ALOS-2, TanDEM-X)
  2. Forest cover mapping and temporal change detection using optical satellite imagery (Sentinel-2, RapidEye, DMCii and more)
  3. Mapping of storm damages and developing an operative service
  4. Innovative forestry services web map environment for tailored map applications
