International Forest, & Environmental Development
Remote Sensing Technology in combination with Geographic Information System provides reliable information on land use change, land use dynamics, etc. The progress made in remote sensing and GIS these recent years have made that there is a lot of applications in forestry. The applications range from the creation of thematic maps, monitoring deforestation and land use change in the tropics and other areas in the world, use of ground penetration radar (GPR) to estimate belowground biomass, use of photogrammetric techniques to estimate aboveground biomass and reduce destruction of big trees to have true biomass data, etc.
LIDAR, RADAR and other satellite images, cartography and GIS for assessment of land use change and development of thematic maps.
Database development, design and establishment of information and knowledge management systems.
Combining remote sensing data with field data to develop biomass map at local, provincial, national and regional scale.
