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:
- Above-ground biomass estimation and change detection using Synthetic Aperature Radar (SAR) data (Sentinel-1, ALOS-2, TanDEM-X)
- Forest cover mapping and temporal change detection using optical satellite imagery (Sentinel-2, RapidEye, DMCii and more)
- Mapping of storm damages and developing an operative service
- Innovative forestry services web map environment for tailored map applications
The study is funded by ESA/ESTEC through contract number AO/1-7332/12/NL/KML.
